Two Lady Raiders Earn National Academic Recognition

A pair of Rider Lady Raider soccer players earned national recognition for their classroom work Thursday.

Brooke Deason and Katie McCann were each named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's High School Scholar All-Region team for the West Region.

Deason was one of four forwards honored from the region, while McCann was one of four defenders.

In addition, Deason earned the even greater honor of being named one of 38 High School Scholar All-Americans.

She was the only girl from Texas to earn the award.
