Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University senior women's soccer standout Carley Dubbert (St. Joseph's) has been honored as one of the 2018-19 recipients of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference's (GLIAC) prestigious Pat Riepma Post Graduate Scholarship.
One of two honorees this academic year, Dubbert will receive a $5,000 academic scholarship from the GLIAC to help support her graduate studies. She was recognized as a recipient along with Northern Michigan swimmer and diver Nathan Rotundo.
"The resumes of the candidates were impressive to say the least," noted GLIAC Commissioner Kris Dunbar. "I can't say enough about the caliber of scholar athletes who represent our member schools. Carly and Nathan will go on to be wonderful ambassadors for their schools, the GLIAC and Division II athletics. We wish them the best with their graduate studies."
Dubbert is a three-time GLIAC Academic Excellence Award recipient and dean's list honoree, and received a Commissioner's Award in 2017 and '18. She was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-District Team in 2018.
As a senior this past season, Dubbert tallied 23 points with eight goals and seven assists in 24 outings while leading the Bulldogs to a NCAA Sweet Sixteen finish. She notched 76 total shots, including 37 on net and finished with three game-winning markers for the Bulldogs. Dubbert was also an All-GLIAC honoree for the third time and departed as one of the winningest seniors in program history.
During her final campaign, Dubbert was a 2018 Google Cloud/CoSIDA Academic All-District pick and an all-region choice for the Bulldogs, who were ranked nationally a majority of the season for the first time in school history. FSU finished second in the GLIAC regular-season standings, which was the team's highest finish ever, and also made its first-ever appearance in the GLIAC Tournament championship game. Dubbert was a two-time United Soccer Coaches Scholar-Athlete Award recipient in addition to being a four-year starter and letterwinner at Ferris State.
Dubbert, with a 3.98 grade point average, is a member of the Ferris State College of Pharmacy Class of 2022. She attended pharmacy school while completing her final year of soccer eligibility.
"I am fortunate to have found a school that fostered both of my passions," Dubbert said. "This past Fall was a demanding semester, juggling both commitments, but it was the perfect situation for me, and I would not change a thing."
Dubbert plans to apply for a residency after earning her degree.
