Senior Kaitlin Sather was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Third Team on Thursday. It is the second time she has been recognized with this award, also earning the honor in 2007.
Sather, who has a 3.72 cumulative grade point average, is a history major who is also minoring in education. The redshirt senior has twice been named to the Pac-10 All-Academic Team, receiving first-team honors in 2007 and honorable mention accolades in 2006.
Honorees must have a 3.30 cumulative GPA, played in at least 50 percent of a team's matches and be at least a sophomore academically.
Since 2006, the Bruins have earned seven Academic All-District honors. Last year, Jade Machado was named to the All-District Second Team, and in 2007, Machado earned first-team honors and was joined by third-team members Sather and Meghan Schoen. In 2006, Machado and Nana Meriwether were recognized on the second team.
