CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s lacrosse senior Sammy Mueller (Pelham, N.Y.) has been named to the 2019-20 CoSIDA Academic All-America Division I Women’s At-Large team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Mueller earned second-team honors and is one of four Cavaliers to earn the honor. This is the highest number of Cavaliers to earn a spot on the Academic All-America At-Large teams since also having four earn the honors in 1997.

Mueller, a three-time All-American, gradated in May with a degree in Commerce with a 3.71 GPA. The midfielder was a standout during her career with the Cavaliers, being named to the Tewaaraton Top 25 as a junior. Mueller was a three-time All-ACC selection and three-time ACC All-Academic team selection. She finished her UVA career ranked sixth all-time at Virginia in goals (165), fourth in draw controls (204), eighth in points (215) and ninth in caused turnovers (84). She led ACC in ground balls last two years and paced UVA in points, ground balls, caused turnovers and draws in last two seasons. Mueller is the fifth player in program history to be named an Academic All-American and the first since Courtney Swan in 2015.
