Lincoln Memorial University sophomore forward Nicole McKinney, who played for Ooltewah High School, has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District Women's Soccer Team. 

The Capital One Academic All-District  Women’s Soccer Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA’s Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.

McKinney led the Lady Railsplitters on the field as well as in the classroom since her arrival at Lincoln Memorial University. Academically, she holds a cumulative grade point average of 3.97 while double majoring in accounting and education.

On the soccer field, McKinney was selected as a team captain prior to the start of the season. She started all 16 contests for the Lady Railsplitters, tallying three goals and a team-high three assists. She tied for the team lead with 46 shots while finishing second with 18 shots on goal. The highlight of McKinney's season came on October 24th, as she paced the Lady Railsplitters to a 5-0 win over Bryan College with two goals and an assist.

In her two years at Lincoln Memorial, McKinney has recorded five goals, five assists and 15 points in 30 appearances.

The Capital One Division II and III Academic All-America program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2012-13 DII and DIII Academic All-America teams program.

McKinney will advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
