GREENWOOD, Ind. - For the second consecutive season, Michaila Parent (Westborough, Mass.), a senior on the Worcester State University field hockey team, has been selected to the Google Cloud Academic All-District First Team, as voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The 2018-19 Google Cloud Academic All-District Men's and Women’s At-Large Teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances in the athletic realm and in the classroom. The Google Cloud Academic All-America® program separately recognizes outstanding student-athletes in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and NAIA.
Parent became the Lancers' all-time leader in goals, assists, and points during her senior season that saw her score 18 goals and 13 assists for 49 points. She was a one-time Little East Offensive Player of the Week award recipient, and was named a Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) National Weekly Honorable Mention once.
At season's end, Parent was named to the First Team All-Little East Conference for her efforts, and was selected to play in the NFHCA Division III Senior All-Star Game on November 17. She was also named First Team All-Region by the NFHCA.
Parent will graduate from Worcester State on Saturday with a perfect cumulative grade point average of 4.0. Last week, she was awarded the Senior Female Margaret "Peg" Nugent Award, given to the top Worcester State senior student-athlete for outstanding academic and athletic achievement, and previously she was the recipient of the Biotechnology Academic Major Award, owning the highest GPA of any graduating biotechnology major.
Parent will now be automatically entered into the running for CoSIDA Academic All-America, which will be announced in June.
