GC’s Graham, CSU’s Goodfellow Named Google Cloud Academic All-District

GREENWOOD, IND – Georgia College's Ashlee Graham and Columbus State's Madeline Goodfellow were both named to the Google Cloud Academic All-District Team.  The team, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes
for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The Google Cloud Academic All-America® program separately recognizes soccer honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

A senior goalkeeper, Graham owns a 3.97 GPA in Exercise Science.

This marks the first time Graham has picked up the academic honor in her stellar career. The first Bobcat goalkeeper to earn the honor, she gives Bobcat Soccer eight Academic All-District honorees all time, the most recent being Ally Barys in 2015. Graham now moves on to the Academic All-America ballot.

On the field, Graham led the Peach Belt Conference in saves and shutouts and was second in goals against average and third in wins.   Named the PBC Goalkeeper of the Week three times, she also led the conference in minutes played and was named second-team All-Conference and to the PBC All-Tournament team.

Goodfellow, a sophomore from Columbus, Ga., currently carries a perfect 4.0 grade point average and is majoring in general business.
In addition to academic prowess, Goodfellow recently earned her second consecutive All-PBC honor. The defender has started all 38 games of her career and led the Lady Cougar field players in minutes played in each of her two seasons.
 In 2018, Goodfellow has helped CSU become the top defensive team in the conference, allowing just 13 goals in 18 matches. The Lady Cougars have nine shutouts on the season, including three consecutive clean sheets on their way to a PBC Tournament championship.

Goodfellow and the Cougars will take on Lincoln Memorial on Friday in the third round of the NCAA Tournament. 

The Google Cloud Academic All-District® teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The Google Cloud Academic All-America® program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.
