HAMMOND, Ind. – Junior defender Grant Ugarte (Oak Lawn, Ill./Oak Lawn) was named to the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District® 4 Men's Soccer Team announced Thursday.
Ugarte currently owns a 3.9 GPA, is a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and is majoring in Finance and Accounting.
The 6-foot-5 junior led the back line for the Black and Gold who earned a #3 seed in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason tournament.
“Grant really applies himself in the classroom and on the field and is completely deserving of this recognition,” head coach Ryan Hayes said.
The fourth district of Division II encompasses the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC), Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) and Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC). First-team Academic All-District® honorees, announced Thursday by CoSIDA, advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be announced in early December.
