San Diego, Ca - Former Stanford women's soccer All-American Julie Foudy is among a group of 25 finalists for induction into the 17th annual Academic All-America Hall of Fame. Four of the finalists will be inducted in ceremonies in San Diego, on July 21, 2004.
Foudy was a four-time first team All-American (1989-92) at Stanford. Foudy is Stanford's second all-time leading scorer with 52 goals and third all-time in assists (33).
Foudy has been a member of the United States National Team, and helped lead the United States to the gold medal in 1996, and the 1999 Women's World Cup Championship.
The Academic All-America Hall of Fame was established in 1988 by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) to honor former college scholar-athletes who have excelled in their professions and made substantial contributions to their communities. To be eligible, a candidate had to be an Academic team member who graduated at least ten years ago.
The Hall of Fame finalists were chosen from a group of more 200 nominees and were selected by a 80 member voting board representing CoSIDA's 2,000 members.
