Friesen, Stone named all-academic
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs sophomore forward Matt Friesen was been named to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Menâ€TMs Soccer All-Academic First Team for the 2009 season, the conference announced Thursday.
It was Friesenâ€TMs first All-Academic award of his collegiate career. By RMAC guidelines, he was not eligible to earn the award as freshman.
A Sport Management major in the College of Business, he has posted a 3.788 Grade Point Average.
Friesen has started every game this year for UCCS and is the teamâ€TMs top offensive threat. He leads the team in goals (five), points (12), and has tallied a team-high two game-winning goals.
Teammate Donny Stone also received recognition for his studies from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. Stone was named as an Honorable Mention for the 2009 All-Academic Team.
To qualify for Academic All-RMAC, student-athletes must have a GPA of 3.30 or better, be a starter or reserve, and completed two consecutive semesters or three quarters at their current institution. The student-athleteâ€TMs GPA is what they had earned prior to soccer season beginning. RMAC Sports Information Directors at schools that sponsor the sport of menâ€TMs soccer selected the first and second teams.
