Louisiana Tech’s Amber Posthauer and Josie Studer were voted to the 2020-21 First Team Academic All-District 6 for Division I Women’s Soccer, announced today by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

This marks the first Academic All-District honor for both Posthauer and Studer. It is only the third time in LA Tech program history that multiple players were selected. Eight total Lady Techsters have earned this honor.

Posthauer, who was also a Conference USA All-Academic First Team selection, recently graduated with a cumulative grade point average of 3.98 while majoring in Exercise and Health Promotion with a minor in Entrepreneurship.

She is a four-time C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll recipient and a three-time C-USA Academic Medalist.

The midfielder played in 67 matches in her four-year career while making 26 starts. She has totaled 33 career points with 14 goals and five assists. Five of those points came during the 2020-21 season, which included two goals and one assist.

Studer carries a 3.84 cumulative grade point average while majoring in marketing. The sophomore was one of only three underclassmen to be voted to the 13-person All-District 6 Team.

She is a two-time C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll recipient and a two-time C-USA Academic Medalist.

On the field, Studer saw action in 15 matches this past season, making 14 starts on the back line. She totaled 1,210 minutes played, the third most on the team, while registering 24 shots in route to being named third Team All-Conference USA and Third Team All-South Region.

The Women’s Soccer Team recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America program separately recognizes soccer honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

First Team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. Those honorees will be announced in early July.
