Boca Raton, FL - Florida Atlantic University women's soccer senior defender Gabriela DeVries has been recognized for her academic and athletic achievement, earning Capital One Academic All-District honors for the second consecutive season by College Sports Information Directors of America. The Navarre native was a second-team honoree this year, thus becoming the second player in school history to be selected to multiple district academic teams.
DeVries, a biology major with a 3.80 cumulative grade point average, played in 75 career matches and helped anchor a defensive unit that posted a winning home record in three of her four seasons. She tallied two goals and eight assists in her career, contributing an assist during each season. Her pass helped set up the goal in the Owls' victory over the University of Louisiana-Monroe on October 23. On defense, DeVries helped the team post shutouts this fall over Stetson University, University of Missouri-Kansas City and Furman University.
DeVries earned third-team academic all-district honors last season. She joins Danielle Castro (2001, 2003) and Megan Coyne (2005) as the only FAU women's soccer players to receive academic all-district honors.
