Keri Zwikker named to ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District Third team
Not only is senior forward Keri Zwikker a force to be reckon with on the field, but she is also a force in the classroom after being named ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District Third team on Monday.

The Woodstock, Ontario native posted a 3.85 GPA as an exercise science major to earn the honor for the second year in a row.

“It is a great honor for Keri to be recognized for her hard work on and off the field,” said JU head coach Brian Copham. “She is a tremendous leader with an incredible work ethic and I think this award is recognition of that. I am happy for her and the honor she has received.”

On the field in 2008, Zwikker lead the team in goals (9), assists (6) and points (24). Her goals total is fourth in the A-Sun, while her points tally ranks second in the conference.

Zwikker ranks second in goals (49), assists (24) and points (122) for her JU career. She is only one of two JU players to score more than 40 goals for her career and her goal tally is the highest among all active A-Sun players over the last four years.

Off the field, she has been named to A-Sun academic all-conference team and Dean’s list in each of the last three years. She was also named to the NSCAA Scholar-Athlete Academic All-America third team and ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America Second team in 2007 to go along with her other academic accolades.

Zwikker and the Dolphins return to action on Wednesday, when they face East Tennessee State in the first round of the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament in Kennesaw, Ga. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m.
