BOULDER - University of Colorado soccer player Hayley Hughes has received Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District VII 2012-13 First Team honors.

The junior from Highlands Ranch, Colo. has excelled in academics and athletics. Hughes, a business major, has earned a 3.92 cumulative grade point average. As a forward, she has been an important part of the Buffaloes' attack this season. She has started all 19 games, scoring two goals and contributing three assists off 27 shots.  

Hughes' first goal of the season was a team effort, helping the Buffs to a 2-1 victory over Cincinnati at the DU Invitational. A goal kick from keeper Annie Brunner found Olivia Pappalardo at midfield. Pappalardo headed the ball to Hughes who broke away to put Colorado on the board and help her earn a spot on the All-Tournament team.

Her second goal came in the Buffs' 2-0 shutout of Air Force. In the final 10 minutes, Hughes added the insurance while the goalie was down.

All three of Hughes' assists this season have been in shutouts. Her first two happened early in the season, helping Anne Stuller to goals in the Buffs' 3-0 win over Northern Colorado and their 2-0 win over LIU Brooklyn. Hughes also helped the Buffs grab back-to-back Pac-12 victories for the first time ever, assisting Storie Ledger to her first career goal in the 3-0 win over Arizona.

Hughes has also earned 2011 Pac-12 All-Academic First Team honors. She is the fourth Buff to earn CoSIDA All-Academic District VII honors, and the first since 2005. Linda Wikstrom (1999), Ellen Falender (2004) and Alyssa Burgess (2003) all earned first team honors, while Jessica Keller (2005) rounds out the group on the second team. Hughes now moves on the ballot for the Capital One Women's Soccer Academic All-America team.
