CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Lizzy Nichols, a co-captain of the Harvard women's soccer team, has been honored on the National Soccer Coaches Assocation of America Scholar All-East Region second team, the NSCAA recently announced.

Nichols, a defender from Princeton, N.J., was one of 10 finalists for the prestigious Lowe's Senior CLASS Award this season, which honors a student-athlete's character, as well as success in the classroom, community and on the playing field.  Nichols was also recently selected as a semifinalist for the Coach Wooden Citizenship Cup, which is given to a collegiate and a professional athlete who have made the greatest positive influence in the lives of others.

A three-time Academic All-Ivy League choice, Nichols also garnered a spot on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District team for the second straight season this fall.  She started 16 games this season and scored two goals, including the game-winning tally against Penn on a penalty kick Sept. 26.  Nichols was the leader of the Crimson defender and received her fourth nod to the All-Ivy League team, grabbing a selection to the second team this season.

She was also tabbed to the NEWISA All-New England second team and was selected to compete at the NEWISA Senior Bowl earlier this month.
