PUEBLO, Colo. (November 16, 2017) – Caitlin Broadwell and Mikala Morris of the Colorado State University-Pueblo Volleyball team both received Academic All-District honors from the Colorado Sports Information Directors of America Thursday.
Broadwell (Sr., Lawrence, Kan.) adds this award to her growing trophy case. She was named First Team Academic All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference earlier this season. Broadwell also earned All-RMAC accolades in each of the last two seasons.
Morris (Sr., Tempe, Ariz.) earns COSIDA Academic All-District honors for the second time in her career. The senior last received this honor in 2015. That year she also received a First Team Academic All-RMAC distinction. Morris has been a four-time member of the RMAC's Honor Roll.
In the classroom, Broadwell holds a 3.72 GPA as she nears her degree in psychology. On the court, Broadwell led the Pack with 3.48 kills per set, sixth most in school history.
Morris excels in the classroom with a 4.0 GPA. Incredibly, she is pursuing three undergraduate degrees in political science, Spanish, and mass communications.
Both Morris and Broadwell will now advance to the national ballot. They will hope to be the Pack's third and fourth COSIDA Academic All-American in history and first since Kacy Griffin in 2013.
