CHICAGO – Ten Roosevelt University student-athletes were named to the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference 2013 Fall All-Academic Teams, the conference office announced on Friday.

Roosevelt's men's soccer and volleyball teams each garnered five spots on their respective CCAC All-Academic Teams for a new school-record mark, a year after the Lakers debuted in the league's fall all-academic award program with just three total selections.

Junior volleyball student-athlete Nicole Winter is a repeat honoree, while she was joined by sophomore teammates Arielle Nausieda, Najoua Alioualla, Tori Schrementi and Taylor Troutman. The five CCAC All-Academic selections make for a program-best count by head coach Kelly Fitzgerald's team.  

The Roosevelt men's soccer team had five honorees in its first opportunity to have CCAC All-Academic Team selections. All-CCAC goalkeeper Jake Cigelnik and midfielder Andrew Obmalay, the young program's all-time leading goal scorer with nine goals in two seasons, headline head coach Graham Brennan's group of All-Academic selections. Hayden Hagemann, Brent Levi and Henrique Chamas also received the nod for their stout academic performances.  

A total of 300 student-athletes from CCAC schools were named to the fall all-academic teams, which encompass men's and women's soccer, volleyball and men's and women's cross country.

To be nominated for one of the five teams, a student-athlete must have been enrolled at his/her respective CCAC school for a minimum of one academic year, have completed at least 30 semester hours and boast no less than a 3.25 cumulative grade point average.
