Four Oklahoma City University men's soccer players have been recognized for their academic achievement on the CoSIDA academic all-district team.

OCU's Nathan Doll, Trevor Harmon, Ryan Hunter and Kieran McLachlan were honored among the college-division district 7 squad. First-team academic all-district choices advance to consideration for academic all-American to be announced later this month. Doll and Hunter were repeat academic all-district selections.

Doll, a senior defender from Tulsa, Okla., has compiled a 3.50 cumulative grade-point average while working towards a degree in kinesiology. Doll has posted two assists, two points and seven shots while leading the Stars to six shutouts.

Harmon, a junior midfielder from Allen, Texas, has put together a 3.53 cumulative GPA while pursuing a marketing degree. Harmon has produced five goals, an assist, 11 points and generated 34 shots for OCU.

Hunter, a senior midfielder from Tulsa, Okla., maintains a 3.86 cumulative GPA studying finance at OCU. Hunter has accumulated three goals, two assists, eight points and 25 shots for the Stars.

McLachlan, a sophomore midfielder from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, Scotland, owns a 3.63 GPA majoring in kinesiology. McLachlan has recorded three goals, three assists, nine points and 37 shots for OCU.

Academic all-district and all-American selections have been voted on by College Sports Information Directors of America members to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their performances in the classroom and on the field. Athletes nominated were those maintaining a minimum 3.30 GPA while being a starter or valuable member of an intercollegiate team.

OCU (8-6-3) meets USAO, ranked third in the NAIA, at noon Saturday in Chickasha, Okla., in the Sooner Athletic Conference Tournament.
