Olivia Everin, Haley Kittle, Emily ValentineSeniors Olivia Everin and Haley Kittle and sophomore Emily Valentine earned a spot on the Horizon League Women’s Soccer All-Academic Team.

The Flames led the League with three of the 13 honorees.

Everin received her second career honor after producing a 3.95 cumulative GPA as a biological sciences major. This season as a primary starter, the Ada,
Michigan, native leads the team with four assists and 36 shots.

Valentine picks up the honor in her first year eligible as she has a perfect 4.0 GPA as an economics major.
