PUEBLO, Colo. (February 9, 2017) – Lauren Heyn of the Colorado State University-Pueblo Women's Basketball team earned Academic All-District honors from College Sports Information Directors of America Thursday.
Heyn (So., Loomis, Calif.) becomes the second Pack Women's Basketball player to earn a COSIDA Academic All-District selection. Terry Joy received this honor in 2003-04.
The COSIDA Academic All-District honor is Heyn's second academic award this season. She was named to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference's First Team All-Academic.
Heyn holds a 4.0 GPA in biology, with an emphasis in biomedical science, as a sophomore. She is one just six women's basketball student-athletes with a 4.0 GPA in the conference. Heyn was one of just two players on the team in the Pack's district (district six) that have a perfect 4.0 GPA.
On the court, Heyn averages 6.6 points per game on 43.9 percent shooting from the field. As a freshman, Heyn set the schools' single-season record for field goal percentage, making 55.6 percent of her shots.
She pulls down 5.8 rebounds per game. Heyn also ranks fifth in the RMAC with 1.1 blocks per game. She has eight rejections over her last four games.
Heyn and the rest of the Pack hit the road to play Westminster College Friday night at 5:30 p.m. If CSU-Pueblo wins, they would clinch the RMAC regular season Championship outright. They already have a share of the conference title. The ThunderWolves would also match the RMAC's record for consecutive wins at 25 set by Colorado Mesa University in 2013-14.
