Johnson, Van de Loo Named to CoSIDA Academic All-District Team
BALTIMORE, MD- Johns Hopkins women's soccer players Adrienne Johnson and Meg Van de Loo were each selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District II Women's Soccer Team, the orginization announced today. The pair of Blue Jays are the 30th and 31st Academic All-District Selections under head coach Leo Weil.
The District II region includes Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Rhode Island and West Virginia. To be nominated for the CoSIDA Academic All-America program, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore with a 3.30 or higher cumulative grade point average and be a starter or significant reserve. Johnson and Van de Loo will move on to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot with the national team slated to be announced on Friday, November 20.
Johnson, who received the same award as a sophomore in 2014, currently leads a Hopkins defense that has allowed 1.06 goals per game and just 8.6 shots per game. The Middletown, DE native has started all 15 games she has played in this season and has also helped the offense at times, chipping in with two assists.
Van de Loo leads the team and the Centennial Conference with 15 goals thus far in 2015. Three of her goals were game-winners and the Blue Jays are undefeated (11-0-0) when she finds the back of the net.
The two junior’s talents are not confined to the soccer field, as both are succeeding in the classroom and devoting time to the community.
Johnson is a biology major who carries a 3.38 gpa. Additionally, she has done research for JHU’s School of Medicine, worked as a student assistant in the Hopkins athletic communications department and is a founding member of the “Hop-and-1” mentoring program.
Van de Loo is a four-time Dean’s List honoree who carries a 3.80 gpa as a neuroscience major. She is also a research assistant for neuroscience, works as a student assistant in the athletic training department and volunteers in local hospitals and in JHU’s Catholic community.
The duo and their teammates wrap up their regular season schedule Saturday at Gettysburg and will either finish as the first or second place team in the Centennial Conference’s regular season standings.
