The senior adds another accolade to her Vanderbilt career

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt senior defender Nia Dorsey was named to the CoSIDA Women’s Soccer Academic District team, the organization announced Thursday.

The medicine, health and society student is now placed on the CoSIDA All-America Academic ballot with first, second and third team honorees to be announced in December.

One of Vanderbilt’s two captains, Dorsey has played in 81 straight games for the Commodores while leading them to an SEC regular season championship in 2018 and the Eastern Division title in 2019.

The last time Vanderbilt played a match without Dorsey on the field was Nov. 5, 2015 when Dorsey was a senior in high school.

Dorsey boasts a 3.76 grade-point average adding to her record of impressive accomplishments on and off the pitch. She was a member of the 2018 SEC community service team for her role in the community in Nashville.

Also a member of the 2019 and 2018 SEC second team and All-Southeast Region second team, Dorsey has been a part of three straight SEC Academic Honor Rolls.
