TOWSON, MD - Transylvania women's soccer senior defender Anne Marie Dumaine (California, Ky.) has been selected as a Capital One Division III Academic All-American, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Dumaine is only the third Transylvania athlete to be awarded Academic All-American title in the past 10 years. She was one of 11 named to the Academic All-America Second Team and only All-American representative from the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. The senior co-captain from California, Ky. is a biology major who maintains a 4.00 GPA, the only second-team selection with a perfect GPA.

In the 2013 season, Dumaine was the cornerstone of the solid Pioneer defensive back line, starting all 20 games. Despite her defensive prowess, she recorded five goals and two assists, including a game-winning goal against Franklin on October 15.

Dumaine is a two-time first-team HCAC All-Conference player and a 2011 All-Great Lakes Region team. Last fall, Dumaine was named the 2012 Heartland Conference Tournament MVP.

To be eligible for Academic All-America consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her current institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director.

Since the program's inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 14,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.
