University of Mary Washington tennis players Evan Charles and Lindsay Raulston and field hockey player Haley Kane have been named to the Capital One/College Sports Information Directors' Academic All-District At-Large Teams, named on Thursday.
The 2014 Capital One Academic All-District® At-Large Teams,
selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America,
have been released to recognize the nation's top student-athletes
for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's
Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.
First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be announced the first week of June.
The Academic All-District® teams include the student-athletes listed on the attached pages and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada.
This is the third year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-America® Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
The Capital One Division II and III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2013-14 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.
