LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. – Siena Women’s Soccer junior midfielder Michele Tremblay has been named a College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District I First Team selection. By virtue of her recognition, the Goffstown, New Hampshire native advances to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, where First, Second and Third Team All-America honorees will be selected in June.
The 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-District Women’s Soccer Teams recognize the nation’s top student athletes for their combined performances both athletically and in the classroom. Tremblay becomes the Saints’ sixth Academic All-District selection, joining Kirby O’Keefe (2015), Anna Grant (2014), Ashleigh Barone (2011), Patti Carroll (2007) and Amy Loughridge (2007).
Tremblay has excelled both on the field and in the classroom throughout her three years donning the Green and Gold. A two-time MAAC Offensive Player of the Week this fall, she’s started all 18 matches at midfield for the defending MAAC Champions while tallying 15 points. Tremblay ranks tied for second in the MAAC in game-winning goals (three), and tied for eighth in goals (six) for a Siena squad which finished the regular season in second place in the conference standings. For her career, she’s appeared in 58 matches (53 starts) totaling 28 points on nine goals and 10 assists.
Academically, Tremblay possesses a stellar 3.91 cumulative GPA while majoring in psychology. She’s been named to both the MAAC All-Academic Team and Academic Honor Roll in each year of eligibility, and is a member of Siena Athletics’ 4.0 Club after achieving a perfect GPA during the most recent spring semester.
Tremblay and the Saints return to action when they open their MAAC Championship defense as the No. 2 seed in the conference semifinals against a yet-to-be-determined opponent on Friday, Nov. 4 in West Long Branch, New Jersey.
