Wittenberg Duo Earns Academic All-District Honors

2015 CoSIDA Academic All-District Volleyball Teams

The Wittenberg volleyball duo of junior middle hitter Emily Kahlig (Coldwater, OH/Coldwater) {right} and junior outside hitter Kara Seidenstricker (London, OH/Jonathan Alder) {left} were named to the 2015 Academic All-District Team, it was announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) on November 5th.

Kahlig and Seidenstricker were both first-team selections in District 7 and will now advance to the Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

This is the fifth year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA recognizes four teams - NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-District Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools. Previously, CoSIDA recognized a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I); with the four teams, CoSIDA has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored.

The Division II and Division III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2015-16 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.
