MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State junior Alicia Watson was named to the second team CoSIDA All-District Academic Team on Thursday as announced by the organization.
Watson has seen action in 23 matches for the Bearcats recording nine service aces and 12 assists. She also carries a .943 serving percentage in the weekend’s final action of the season for the Bearcats. A native of Shawnee Mission, Kan. she carries a 4.00 GPA in Corporate Recreation and Wellness.

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
