SEWARD, Neb. – An NAIA Scholar-Athlete and GPAC All-Conference honoree, Concordia University Women’s Tennis sophomore Mariana Molano earned another postseason award on Tuesday (May 14). College Sports Communicators (CSC) announced Molano as a 2024 Academic All-District® selection. Molano garnered All-District distinction in her first year eligible for the award.

The 2023-24 Academic All-District® Tennis Teams, selected by College Sports Communicators, recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the court and in the classroom. Student-athletes must achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher in order to be nominated for this award. The CSC Academic All-America® program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA — for each gender.

A native of Bogotá, Colombia, Molano majors in Business Administration. This past 2024 season, Molano was recognized by the GPAC with all-conference honors at No. 1 singles and for doubles (honorable mention). She posted overall season records of 11-5 in singles (most singles wins on the team) and 10-6 in doubles. Over two collegiate seasons, Molano owns a combined 24 singles and 20 doubles victories. She helped lead Head Coach Lisa Hart’s squad to a third-place conference finish this spring.
