For the second year in a row, Duke University senior Rachel-Rose Cohen of the Duke University Women’s Soccer team has been selected ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America, which was released on Tuesday by the College Sports Information Director’s of America (CoSIDA).

Last season, Cohen earned third team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors and this year she was named to the second team.

A product of San Diego, Calif., Cohen led the Blue Devils on the defensive end starting all 21 contests, while leading the Blue Devils to nine shutouts. Over her four years with the Blue Devils, Cohen led Duke to 41 shutouts and 52 victories.

The 5-4 defender owns a 3.81 grade point average and is majoring in biological anthropology and anatomy. Cohen is a three-time ACC Honor Roll selection and has made the Dean’s List at Duke five different times.

This announcement comes in the same week that the captain of the men’s cross country team was named one of 32 Rhodes Scholars, an unbelievable feat, and something for which everyone to be proud of.
