LARAMIE, Wyo. – Wyoming soccer’s Laurel Ramer has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District VII First Team, announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America. The honor is the third of Ramer's career, as she was among 11 student-athletes selected to the District VII First Team. She now moves on to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, which will be chosen later this month.
A native of Kasson, Minn., Ramer is currently a Pharmacy student with a 4.00 grade-point average. The senior forward has been an offensive threat for the Cowgirls during her career, with seven goals and five assists in 64 total appearances. In 2015, she played in 17 games with 12 starts, notched two goals and two assists, and earned Mountain West Academic All-Conference and MW Conference Scholar Athlete honors for the third-consecutive year.
To earn Academic All-District soccer honors a student-athlete must have a cumulative 3.30 GPA, be at least a sophomore athletically, have competed in 50 percent of her team's competitions and completed a full calendar year at her respective institution. Earning Academic All-District honors moves the student-athlete to the ballot for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors. CoSIDA District VII is comprised of schools from nine states including Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.
Ramer and six other seniors will be honored tomorrow for senior day, in the Border War matchup with Colorado State. The presentation is slated for 2:40 before a 3 p.m. MT kick-off.
