FRISCO — Senior Allison Dillon headlined a list of three UTSA soccer players that earned Southland Conference all-academic honors, the league office announced on Wednesday.

Dillon, who carries a 3.43 grade-point average in business, was named to the first team, giving her three academic certificates to close out her career. The Yorba Linda, Calif., native earned second-team All-Southland honors last month after netting a team-leading six goals this fall. She finished her four-year career as the program's all-time leader in points (75), points per game (0.89), goals (29), game-winning goals (13), assists (17), shots attempted (175), shots on goal (96) and games played (84).

Zimmerman, who maintains a 3.34 gpa in business with a marketing minor, picked up her second academic award after being named to the conference's first team this past season. She became the second player in program history to be named first- or second-team All-Southland all four years after scoring two goals and recording four assists this year. The Mansfield native was named to the Southland's All-Tournament Team after helping UTSA to its first-ever conference championship. Zimmerman's 16 career assists and six game-winning goals rank second in program history, while her 48 points and 16 goals stand third.

Dugan, who totes a 3.67 gpa in biology, collected her second consecutive academic honor after helping lead the Roadrunners defense to a school-record 10 shutouts in 2010. The Denton native played in all 23 matches and logged three assists despite playing primarily as a defender. She helped spear-head a defensive effort that allowed just one goal in the Southland Tournament and was named to the all-tournament team for her efforts.
