BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University rising seniors Jakie Köhli (Burnaby, B.C., Canada/Moscrop Secondary) and Cassie Wyckoff  (Los Altos, Calif./Los Altos) earned honorable mention All-America status from the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) after stellar junior seasons.

Köhli is a back-to-back honorable mention selection, as the Burnaby, B.C. native earned the honor in 2010, while Wyckoff becomes the seventh Hoosier to be recognized with All-America distinction.

Köhli finished the 2011 campaign with team highs of 71 goals and 89 steals, while also recording 37 assists and 25 field blocks. She put together 20 multi-goal performances, as well as 24 games with two or more steals.

She will enter her senior season as the fifth highest scorer in IU history with 180 goals. The all-time scoring leader is Kristin Stanford with 246 markers.

Following the 2011 season, Köhli earned spots on the NCAA All-Tournament Second Team, Western Division All-Conference Second Team, and Eastern Championship All-Tournament First Team.

Wyckoff is coming off a remarkable junior season in the cage that included a single season school record of 348 saves, along with 22 assists and 47 steals while starting each of the Hoosiers' 39 contests. She has 752 career saves, which is second on the IU all-time list.

The Los Altos, Calif. native was named MVP of the CWPA Eastern Championship and earned a spot on the All-Tournament First Team after a standout performance during the title game win against rival the University of Michigan.

Both players will compete at the 2011 World University Games on August 12-23 with Köhli on Team Canada and Wyckoff on Team USA.
