Nov. 23, 1999
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA goalkeeper Lindsay Culp was named to the Pac-10 all-academic first team, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced Tuesday.
This is the third straight year Culp, a Political Science major with a 3.26 grade-point average, has earned the honor. Last year, she was named to the first team and in 1997, she earned second team all-academic acclaim.
A senior from Santa Rosa, Culp was a four-year starter from 1996-99. During her tenure at UCLA, she set numerous school records, including career wins (55), saves (265) and shutouts (32). She also holds school records for most shutouts in a season (10 in 1998) and most wins (17 in 1998 and '97).
Also earning Academic All-Pac-10 acclaim was sophomore midfielder Bethany Bogart, who picked up honorable mention honors. A biology major with a 3.31 grade-point average, Bogart led the team in assists this season with seven. She also started in all but one of UCLA's 21 games in '99.
To be eligible for selection to the Pac-10 academic team, a student-athlete must have a minumum 3.0 overall grade point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.
