GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- University of North Dakota goaltender Shelby Amsley-Benzie has been named to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-District Women's At-Large Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

The academic all-district teams recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performance athletically and academically. This is the first academic all-district honor for Amsley-Benzie, and the fourth for the UND women's hockey program.

In the classroom, Amsley-Benzie is a chemical engineering major with a 4.0 grade point average. She was named a WCHA Scholar-Athlete and to the WCHA All-Academic Team. On the ice, she helped lead her team to its second-consecutive WCHA Final Face-Off championship game. She posted a 14-7-2 record in net this season and had a 1.21 goals-against average and a .958 save percentage during the postseason. Additionally, she led the nation with a .981 third-period save percentage, only conceding three goals in the third period all year.

The academic all-district at-large teams honor student-athletes in the sports of women’s bowling, women’s crew, men’s and women’s fencing, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s gymnastics, men’s and women’s ice hockey, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s rifle, men’s and women’s skiing, men’s and women’s swimming & diving, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s volleyball, men’s and women’s water polo, and men’s wrestling.

Amsley-Benzie and the rest of the Academic all-district honorees now advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be announced the first week of June.
