University of Arizona women's basketball player Krista Warren has been named to the Verizon Academic All-District VIII third team, announced the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) awards committee on Thursday.
The senior forward from Cloverdale, Calif., has a 3.384 grade-point average with a major in studio art and a minor in religious studies. A starter in all 24 contests this season, Warren is second in rebounding for the Cats, averaging 7.2 boards per game, and is the team's fourth-leading scorer, at 11.5 ppg.
A two-time honorable mention Academic All-Pac-10 selection, Warren is receiving her first-ever All-District award. She was among 15 athletes chosen from a region that encompasses Division I schools in the states of California, Hawai'i, Alaska, British Columbia, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Arizona.
To be eligible for Verizon Academic All-America honors, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA, must be a starter or an important reserve, and must be in at least their second season of athletic and academic eligibility at their current school. First team selections are placed on the national ballot for Verizon Academic All-America voting.
