SEWARD, Neb. – A standout in the classroom and on the court, senior Becky Mueller has been named to the 2015-16 Academic All-District Women’s Basketball Team (District 3) by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), as announced on Thursday. Mueller’s all-district award is the second-straight for Concordia women’s basketball. Last season Bailey Morris garnered the same award.
The CoSIDA Academic All-District® Women’s Basketball Teams have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. For more information about the Academic All-District™ and Academic All-America® Teams program, please visit http://cosida.com.
Mueller has produced a near spotless GPA while majoring in biology on a pre-physician assistant track. The native of Elkhorn, Neb., is in her third season as a starter for head coach Drew Olson’s nationally-recognized program. A key contributor in last season’s run to the national championship game, Mueller has averaged 10.6 points and has drilled 145 3-point field goals in 94 career games as a Bulldog. She enters the weekend three points shy of becoming the 24th player in program history to reach 1,000 for a career. She earned second team all-conference honors in 2014-15.
Mueller joins a long list of Concordia athletes to receive all-district accolades over the past two seasons. The 2014-15 academic year saw a school record 11 Bulldogs collect such recognition. This year’s honorees include Chandler Folkerts (men’s basketball), Hallick Lehmann (football), Adam Meirose (football) and Mueller.
District 3 of the College Division covers institutions in the states of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. First-team Academic All-District™ honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
