SEWARD, Neb. – Already a two-time first team All-GPAC performer, sophomore Philly Lammers is also an excellent student. On Thursday (March 15), the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) named Lammers to its College Division Academic All-America® basketball team.

The CoSIDA Academic All-America® Women’s Basketball Teams have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.

A product of Millard West High School, Lammers is arguably the top post player in the NAIA. A second team All-American as a freshman, Lammers earned NAIA first team all-national tournament honors after leading the Bulldogs to the national championship game. Over 38 games this season, the Omaha native averaged 13.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.3 blocks per game. She shot 51.4 percent from the floor and 73.8 percent from the free throw line.

Lammers was named Academic All-District by CoSIDA on Feb. 22. Student-athletes are eligible for CoSIDA awards beginning with their sophomore seasons.
