WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – University of Oregon sophomore catcher Alexa Peterson became the 43rd Duck to receive Pac-12 All-Academic acclaim with her second-team honor in the Pacific-12 Conference’s announcement Tuesday.

In the 22nd year of the honor, the communication Disorders and Science major was tabbed to the 10-person second team thanks to her 3.49 cumulative GPA.

Peterson is the third honoree in as many years in the tenure of head coach Mike White, and followed the lead of Kaitlin Vitek who was a firs-team honoree in 2009, ’10 and ’11.

To be eligible for the award, players must be returning players that are at least a sophomore academically, maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA, and be a starter or played at least half of the team’s competitions.

A month ago, the Salem, Ore., native was tabbed to the 11-person, Capital One Academic All-District Softball Team  and joined Vitek as the Ducks’ second honoree under White (and fifth since 2003).
