CMU Women's Track/Cross Country Athletes Earn All-Districts
FAYETTE, MO -- Central Methodist's Tabatha Dickey, Deanna Quisenberry, Adriana Romero and Amelia Truex have been named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District ® Women's Track/Cross Country College Division first team for District 5. The 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.
Dickey, from nearby Fayette, holds a 3.88 GPA in Athletic Training. Quisenberry, from Holden, Mo., held a 3.81 GPA and double-majored in Psychology and Criminal Justice. Romero, from Redwood City, Calif., sports a 3.47 GPA in Communication Studies, while Truex, from Bunceton, Mo., has a 3.50 GPA in Accounting.
All four student-athletes 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.
Capital One became the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs in 2011. The Academic All-District ® teams 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.
