Lauren Goggin, the winningest women's tennis player in Viking history, is Augustana's 167th Academic All-American.
Goggin, who graduated last month, was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team in the At-Large Division at the NCAA Division III level Monday. She is the first Augustana women's tennis player to earn Academic All-America honors since Brigette Morrow in 1994.
An accounting and business administration major at Augustana, Goggin's post-graduation plans are to work at Plante Moran in cybersecurity consulting, and study for the CPA exam. She is a native of Arlington Heights, Ill.
The team captain, Goggin had a 3.60 GPA. She had three accounting internships during her time at Augustana. In July of last year she passed the Certified Information Systems Auditor exam and she was named a winner of a "50 for the Future" award in February 2017, presented by the Illinois Technology Foundation.
Goggin has a combined record of 196-82 throughout her college career. She was 100-40 in singles, while playing mostly at No. 1, and 96-42 in doubles. She is second on the career list for both singles (100) and doubles (96) victories. She is 11th on the singles career winning percentage list at .714 and 14th in doubles with a mark of .698.
She was the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin "Player of the Year" in 2016-17 after she won the No. 1 singles division in the conference tournament. Goggin was a four-time CCIW first team selection and as a first-year student she was the CCIW "Newcomer of the Year."
A multiple CCIW "Player of the Week" selection over the past four years, Goggin was the winner of the Jack Swartz Award from the CCIW for her combination of athletic prowess and academic excellence.
This past year she had a 33-6 singles record while playing at No. 1 and she was 24-12 in doubles. During the 2016-17 season Goggin helped her team win the CCIW championship for the second year in a row. The Vikings also qualified for the NCAA Division III national tournament for the second time in the past three years and finished with a school record 25 victories in a 25-7 campaign.
Goggin and her twin sister, Dana, were co-MVPs for the 2016-17 season.
Augustana has long been a leader in producing Academic All-Americans and currently the Vikings rank seventh in the nation. That number is third among NCAA Division III institutions and is tops in the CCIW and the state of Illinois.
