Ms. Cochran was a two-sport varsity athlete while an undergraduate student majoring in physics, and her video was featured on the UVM admissions web site. "She was honored as the 2004-05 America East Women’s Scholar-Athlete. Cochran was one of two student-athletes in the country to earn a spot on two academic All-America teams in the same year. She was the program’s first academic All-American after earning a spot on the ESPN The Magazine Women's Soccer Academic All-America Team. Cochran followed that up by earning a spot on the same publication’s Women’s At-Large Academic All-America Team for her skiing exploits. Earning a spot on the at-large team was an impressive feat considering she was vying for a spot with student-athletes from 15 sports from around the country." She went on to complete a Ph.D. at Cornell University.
