Augustana junior defender Maggie Hoscheit (St. Charles East HS, St. Charles, Ill.) has been named to the Capital One NCAA Division III Academic All-District team in women's soccer, it was announced today. Hoscheit, a season-long starter on head coach Scott Mejia's nationally ranked Vikings' squad, was one of just 11 players named to the elite team. She was selected in District Seven, which includes NCAA Division III schools in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
Hoscheit was lone player from the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin selected and one of just three representatives from the state of Illinois. The Capital One team is selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Hoscheit has been a key figure in Augustana's success this season as the Vikings won the CCIW title with a 7-0 league record and are currently 16-3 overall and ranked 14th in the latest NCAA Division III national poll. She has helped anchor a defense that has allowed just 18 goals in 19 matches this season. Augustana has recorded eight shutouts and has given up only 10.5 shots per game.
She is a co-captain for the Vikings this year and has earned two varsity letters so far in her career. A biology and pre-medicine major, Hoscheit currently carries a grade point average of 3.87. She is a member of the Order of Omega Greek Leadership Honor Society and was also selected to the National Society for Leadership and Success.
Hoscheit was a member of the marketing team for the "Payne in the ALS 5000 meter" fundraising event last spring. An active member of Augustana's Student Athlete Advisory Committee, she is also a member of the school's biology club. She is currently helping a professor with a psychological-based research project. She has been very active in several volunteer events, including a Salvation Army Food Bank, Dance Marathon, Relay for Life and Hospice Volunteer. She also experienced a week-long 24 hour live-in mission trip at the Missionaries of Charity's Gift of Peace Home in Washington D.C. in the summer of 2012.
Augustana has long been a leader in producing Academic All-Americans under the program, which is run by the College Sports Information Directors of America. The Vikings rank sixth all-time with 139 Academic All-Americans since the program began in 1952. Augustana is second in NCAA Division III, trailing only Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Maggie is the daughter of John and Teri Hoscheit of St. Charles, Illinois. Her name will now be advanced to the national ballot for voting on the Academic All-American team.
