HAVERFORD, Pa. – A total of 12 Haverford student-athletes have been selected to the College Sports Communicators (CSC) Academic All-District At-Large Squads, the organization announced in a release on Tuesday afternoon.

For the Women's At-Large team, field hockey players Anna Bradley and Zoey Despines joined the women's lacrosse pairing of Brooke Epstein and Tiffany Mikulis, and the women's fencing duo of Sophie Gardiner and Rebecca Osbaldeston in earning spots on the team. On the men's side, fencers Daniel Carvalho and Michael Pyo joined the men's lacrosse quartet of Jacob Abraham, Teddy Carlin, James Surgenor, and Reid Tietjen in garnering the CSC honor.

Bradley, a 2024 Stephen G. Cary '37 award winner, earned several accolades during the 2023-2024 campaign, including becoming the first four-time NFHCA Scholar of Distinction honoree in program history. An Ambler-Scholar Athlete, Bradley was named to the NFHCA Academic Squad and the Centennial Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll. Starting all 17 games for the Fords, the Carlsbad, Calif. native finished the season second on the team in goals with five, including finding the back of the cage twice against Eastern in the season-opening game (9/1). Notching three assists along the way, Bradley finished the 2023 season tied for the team lead in points with 15.

A big presence in the midfield, Despines earned a Centennial Conference Honorable Mention nod in 2023. Collecting NFHCA Academic Squad and Centennial Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll spots, the Barrington, R.I. local paced the Scarlet and Black in assists with four, including an assist in an upset victory over #10 Rowan (9/20). The lone goal scored by Despines this season was a game-winner against McDaniel (10/21).

Earning First-team IWLCA All-Metro Region and First-team All-Centennial Conference plaudits in 2024, Epstein had a breakout season for the women's lacrosse team.

Adding 22 assists to her substantial 61-goal season, Epstein led the team and finished fourth in the Centennial Conference in points with 83. She secured her 100th career point with a goal against Moravian (4/24). The sophomore looks to build upon her already impressive resume in the 2025 season.

Picking up Second-team IWLCA All-Metro Region and First-team All-Centennial Conference honors, the Hopkinton, Mass. native finished second on the team in points with 50 and goals with 43. A PhillySIDA and Centennial Conference Spring Academic Honor Roll selection, the midfielder paced the Scarlet and Black in draw controls with 67.

Earning EWFC and NIWFA Second-team Foil spots, Gardiner, a junior from Stoneham, Mass., led Haverford with 11 wins in 15 bouts in a successful day at the NIWFA Championships (3/5) that saw the Scarlet and Black finish ninth in foil. The fantastic performance earned Gardiner, an EWFC Woman of the Year Finalist, a spot in the NCAA Regional Championships (3/14), where she picked up three victories in her first-round pool.

Hailing from Croydon, Pa., Osbaldeston made a big impact for the Fords en route to an eighth-place sabre squad finish at the NIWFA Championships (3/5). A member of the EWFC and the NIWFA All-Academic Teams, the senior sabrist collected eight wins, including the sole victory against JHU's A-strip. After an impressive performance at the NIWFA Championships, Osbaldeston collected a win in the first round of the NCAA Regional Championships (3/14).

A Morristown, N.J. native, Pyo built upon a 2022-2023 season that saw the foilist earn Second-team All-MACFA honors. This past season, the sophomore garnered USFCA Division III Honorable Mention All-America, USFCA Division III All-Mid/Atlantic South Region, and Second-team All-MACFA honors. After winning 10 bouts to help the Haverford foilists earn silver, Pyo earned a first-round bye in the NCAA Regional Championships (3/14), before securing a second-round win against UNC's Alexander Sichitiu.

Abraham, a Centennial Conference Spring Academic Honor Roll member, appeared in 15 games in the crease for the Fords in 2024, starting 14. The Tarrytown, N.Y. product posted a 7-7 record with a 13.51 GAA in 803:55 of action.
