Lourdes Player Wins Academic Award

Posted: Updated:

Lourdes University sophomore Andrea Brown (Northwood, Ohio/Northwood H.S.) has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District I First Team women's volleyball team in the college division as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). 

A total of seven student-athletes across the 15-state district were selected for the honor.

Brown, a junior middle blocker, has set Lourdes single season blocks record this year with 90, including 17 of the solo variety.  She has tallied 153 kills while hitting .183 for the Gray Wolves and also leads the team with 27 service aces.

Seven times this season Brown has recorded eight or more kills in a match and she registered a season-high seven blocks earlier this year against Union (Ky.).

In the classroom Brown carries a 3.40 cumulative grade point average as a social work major.

Brown is the first Lourdes student-athlete in any sport to earn Academic All-District accolades.

To be eligible for Academic All-District honors, student-athletes must hold at least sophomore status, own a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30 and be either a starter or key reserve.  The college division consists of all NAIA, Canadian, and two-year schools.  District I consists of schools in Connecticut, Washington D.C., Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and West Virginia.  After student-athletes are nominated by their respective institutions, the teams are then voted upon by members of CoSIDA.

By being named to the Academic All-District First Team, she now advances to the Capital One Academic All]America Team ballot, where First, Second and Third Team All]America honorees will be selected later this month.

    When the Reeves Northrup Memorial Bike to the Bay turns 25 this June 21st, it will be extra special for Christine Kajfasz. She has lived with MS for 29 years and will ride in the event for the first time. But this is no easy feet, not for someone with half the horsepower she wishes she could use.
