Myers Named to District 3 Academic At-Large Team
McLEAN, VA -- Catawba senior Olivia Myers (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 3 At-Large Team. Myers, who was selected as a tennis player, has posted a 3.98 GPA while majoring in biology.
Myers went 16-6 for Catawba in singles this past season, mainly playing at the #5 and #6 positions. She went 7-3 in league matches. Myers was 6-5 in doubles action with a 4-4 mark in conference play.
The 2014 Capital One Academic All-District Women’s 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.
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 second 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.
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.
