Karenee Demery just keeps adding to her trophy case.
This time the Cal State Stanislaus soccer forward has been recognized for her academic achievement.
Demery is the first Warrior to make the Capital One Academic All-America first team. Stanislaus teammate Bernie Bettencourt is a second-team selection, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Demery, who is likely to earn her third All-American award for her soccer skills, posted a 3.72 grade-point average as a business major to go with her 19 goals scored during the 2012 season. She led the Warriors to tying a school record with 15 wins and a return berth to the CCAA championships.
Earlier this month, the junior from Merced was also voted by members of CoSIDA as West Region player of the year for the second time in her three-year career.
Bettencourt netted a 3.99 grade-point average as a kinesiology major. The senior midfielder was an All-Region first-team selection with four goals and six assists.
Demery and Bettencourt were the only two student-athletes from the California Collegiate Athletic Association on the Capital One Academic All-America first or second teams. Only one other athlete from the West Region Montana State Billings defender Jennifer Larsen made the first team. UC San Diego placed three students on the third team.
Stanislaus volleyball head coach Christina Lore announced official commitments from four high school standouts on Wednesday.
Sarah Crowl (Fontana), Hannah Green (Salinas), Taylor Massengale (Yuba City) and Jessian Mitchell (Murrieta) have all signed letters of intent.
"They will be great additions to the current team we already have," Lore said in a statement.
Crowl is an all-league defensive specialist and libero from Etiwanda High, where she led the league in digs with 329 (4.7 digs per set). She was named the team's best defensive player and was a three-year letter winner in both volleyball and water polo.
Green was an all-league setter and defensive specialist at North Salinas High. The three-sport star was also an all-league athlete in track and field and soccer. Academically, Green is a four-year honor roll recipient.
Massengale is a three-time all-league middle hitter at River Valley High. She's coming off a senior season where she spiked 341 kills (.544 percentage and 4.9 kills per set) with 61 solo blocks. Massengale holds the school record in both blocks and kills. River Valley was 21-3 and won the league championship this fall.
Mitchell is an outside hitter from Vista Murrieta High, where she was a three-time all-league player. Vista Murrieta went 26-5 and won its third consecutive league championship and was ranked eighth in the Southern Section.
