CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia women's lacrosse senior attacker Courtney Swan (Vero Beach, Fla.) has been named to the 2014-15 Capital One Academic All-District At-Large in honors announced Thursday (May 14) by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
The 2014-15 Capital One Academic All-District® At-Large Teams recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be announced on June 11.
Swan, an IWLCA All-South Region first team honoree, leads the ACC in assists per game (1.84), and ranks fourth in draw controls (4.47) and ninth in points per game (3.47). The All-ACC Second Team member and Tewaaraton Award nominee was named the inside Lacrosse National Player of the Week (March 3) after scoring four goals with four assists and winning nine draws in the win at Penn State. Swan was also the recipient of the prestigious Weaver-James-Corrigan ACC Postgraduate Scholarship this season and the Virginia Athletic Department's ACC Scholar Award presented annually to one male and one female student athlete based on academic excellence and performance with distinction as a member of a varsity team.
Lacrosse is one of 13 women's sports whose athletes are recognized in the at-large category. To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution. The nominees are then voted on by the CoSIDA membership in that district.
Swan is the second Cavalier women's lacrosse player to earn Academic All-District 3 honors, joining Josie Owen who earned the honor in 2012.
