YORK, PA – York College women’s soccer players Emily Sullivan (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Spalding) and Meagan Cahill (Crofton, Md./Arundel) earned ESPN The Magazine CoSIDA District II Academic All-America honors as announced Thursday.  Sullivan’s efforts during the 2007 season garnered a first-team selection while Cahill was a third-team choice.  This is Sullivan’s second career selection as she was named to the second-team as a sophomore in 2005.  The District II College Division consists of all non-NCAA Division I colleges and universities in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

One of the most decorated Spartan athletes, Sullivan is a three-time All-Capital Athletic Conference first-team selection.  She was also named the conference’s Rookie-of-the-Year in 2004 posting 14 goals and nine assists in her freshman campaign.  Sullivan is also York’s career leader in assists with 34.  

An outstanding student, Sullivan sports a 3.96 GPA as a Mathematics major.  

Cahill draws her first Academia All-District accolade in her first season as York’s starter in goal.  The junior goalkeeper brandishes a 0.81 goals against average starting 15 Spartan contests this season.   Cahill sports a record of 9-3-3 and has shutout opponents on five different occasions.  She has made 42 saves good for a .778 save percentage.  A nursing major, Cahill posts a 3.83 GPA.
