Emily Syrjala Named Academic All-Ohio Honoree

HIRAM, Ohio – For the first-time in her four-year career, Hiram women's soccer senior Emily Syrjala has been named a Second-Team Academic All-Ohio selection by the Ohio Collegiate Soccer Association.

Syrjala led the Terriers in scoring during her final season, posting a career-high 11 points while tallying five goals and an assist. Additionally, she was the lone Hiram player this season to produce a hat trick, scoring three times in a victory over Thiel College.

For her career, Syrjala tallied 27 points, scoring 11 times and adding five assists while tallying a pair of game-winning markers.

In the classroom, the three-time Academic All-NCAC honoree is a double major in biology and biomedical humanities while sporting a 3.69 cumulative GPA.

Syrjala is the third Terrier under head coach Michael Cracas to earn Academic All-Ohio honors, joining Allie Glatt and Katelyn Mauch.

"Emily has been a consistent example of what it means to be a Division III student athlete," remarked Cracas. "Her leadership both on and off the pitch was a great asset to the program, and her ability to balance academics and athletics will continue to be an example to our future athletes."
