Fourteen members of the Arizona State women's soccer program earned Pac-12 All-Academic honors, according to an announcement by the conference office.

Included among the 14 players, which tied for the most of any school in the conference (Oregon State also had 14 selections), were three first-team members - sophomores Kaitlyn Pavlovich and Jasmine Roth and redshirt sophomore Nicki Stone.

Junior goalkeeper Alyssa Gillmore was selected to the second team.

Stone (4.09 GPA/tourism development and management) is earning first-team recognition for the second year in a row.

Pavlovich (4.03 GPA/elementary education) and Roth (3.96 GPA/Biochemistry) are earning first-team recognition in their first year of eligibility.
