Albright earns Academic All-District honors
MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State sophomore Jordan Albright was honored Friday by the College Sports Information Directors of America and Capital One as one of the nation’s top student‐athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Albright, a sophomore defender from Webster Groves, Mo., carries a 3.30 GPA in biology earning her second team accolades. She has also helped the Bearcats to a 10-6-2 record and a trip to the MIAA tournament semifinals. The sophomore helped Northwest pitch two shutouts on the year and represented the Bearcats as one of four MIAA teams to place players on the All-District team.
The Academic All‐District ® teams include the student‐athletes listed on the following pages and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the first year of the expanded Academic All‐America® program as CoSIDA moves from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non Division I) and doubles the number of scholar‐athletes honored. The teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division 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 2011‐12 DII and DIII Academic All‐America® teams program.
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 selected later this month.
