Nov. 2, 2010
AUSTIN, Texas -- University of Texas senior defender Erica Campanelli led a group of four Longhorns to be named to the 2010 ESPN Academic All-District 6 Teams, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced on Tuesday.
Campanelli, who advances to the Academic All-America ballot with her First Team selection, is a three-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team honoree and has started every single match during her four-year career at Texas. Her 86 total starts rank fourth all-time at UT. The senior carries a 3.844 in Sport Management and has helped Texas post eight shutouts this season. Campanelli is a three-time ESPN Academic All-District selection after earning Third Team honors in 2009 and Second Team honors in 2008.
Doniak earned her first Academic All-District selection with her 3.46 GPA in Corporate Communication. The junior currently leads the squad in points (21), goals (six) and assists (nine). Her nine helpers tie for the sixth-most in a single-season at UT and are the most by a Longhorn since 2006. Doniak has currently posted either an assist or goal in each of Texas' last six matches. The midfielder is also a two-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team selection.
Cummins, a midfielder, also picked up her first Academic All-District selection. She holds a 3.43 GPA and is second on the team in goals scored (five). The sophomore joined an elite group of 10 Texas players with her hat trick against UW-Milwaukee. Cummins is the first Longhorn since 2006 to post at least three goals in a match and her five goals this season are a career high. The Lewisville, Texas native was also named to the 2010 Academic All-Big 12 First Team.
Campise, a defender from Plano, Texas, currently boasts a 3.46 GPA and has started in 18 matches. The sophomore has posted two assists this season and helped Texas record eight shutouts while holding Big 12 opponents to just seven goals.
To be nominated for all-district consideration, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for her career. No athlete is eligible until he has reached sophomore athletic and academic standing.
The Longhorns start their postseason run on Nov. 3 at 11:30 a.m. Central when they face Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship quarterfinal in San Antonio, Texas.
