DES MOINES, IOWA - Drake junior women's soccer player Laura Moklestad (Des Moines, Iowa/Roosevelt) was honored for her academic success by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) being tabbed to the NSCAA Women's University Scholar All-Central Regional Third Team.

She registered team-leading marks in goals (4), points (9), shots (47), shots on goal (24), and in game-winners (1) en route to capturing second team All-MVC and MVC All-Tournament playing honors.
