By Kelsey Helgeson published November 2, 2013

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- The most successful forward to ever play in a Mountain Lion uniform for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team, Agnes Arnadottir, has recently been awarded for her academic prowess, receiving Capital One Academic All-District accolades granted by the College of Sports Information Directors of America.

Earlier this month, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference released their own awards for student-athlete academic excellence, in which Arnadottir was an All-RMAC First Team selection. Agnes also received RMAC All-Academic Honor Roll accolades in 2012.

A transfer student to UCCS, Arnadottir received her baccalaureate degree in nutrition with a kinesiology minor from the University of Rhode Island. As a senior for the Mountain Lions, she is pursuing her master's degree in sports nutrition and holds a 3.68 cummulative grade point average.

A 2012 All-RMAC Second Team member, Arnadottir continues to lead the offensive charge for the Mountain Lions in 2013. She is currently ranked seventh in the RMAC in points (17), fourth in goals (8), and second in goals per game average (.529).
