COLUMBUS, Ohio – The trio of Capital Women's Soccer seniors are at it again. Jordan Fike, Maggie Peddicord and Allyssa Kimbler continue to rack up postseason awards after the Ohio Collegiate Soccer Association (OCSA) announced its athletic and academic All-OCSA honorees. All three were named academic and athletic First Team All-OSCA selections, adding further to their successful careers.

The OSCA announced on January 21 its lists of the top athletic performers and academic scholars among all Ohio schools at the Division I, II and III levels. Per coaches' nominations, student-athletes are then voted upon by their coaching peers and placed on one of three teams.

Capital seniors Jordan Fike (Powell, Ohio/Olentangy Liberty), Maggie Peddicord (Delaware, Ohio/Buckeye Valley) and Allyssa Kimbler (London, Ohio/London) were recognized on both the all-academic and all-athletic OSCA lists, and all three were tabbed first teamers on both lists.

The announcement comes on the heels of the trio being named to the United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-American teams in mid-December. All were named Third Team Scholar All-American and Academic All-Region to accompany a litany of additional awards. All three also were named Academic All-OAC following the season's end.

With the aid of their contributions, the Crusaders allowed the second-fewest goals (19) and held the second-lowest goals-against average (0.95) in the OAC. They also pitched eight shutouts, tied for second among OAC teams and had seven games in which they allowed one goal, six of those ending in victory. The Crusaders ranked third in goals scored (51), assists (27) and points (129) in the OAC. Cap finished the year 14-6-0 overall and 7-2-0 in OAC play, good for the second seed in the conference tournament.

With all the year's success, the trio also reeled in a host of athletic awards. Fike and Kimbler were named USC First Team All-OAC while Peddicord was named the second team. All three were tabbed First Team All-Region by the United Soccer Coaches.
