LEXINGTON, Ky. – The 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District team was released Thursday afternoon, with junior Ashley Dusek landing on the District Two squad.

Dusek is one of six selections from the district, joining Temple’s Kyra Coundourides, Howard's Khaila Donaldson, Robert Morris’ April Krivoniak, West Virginia’s Hannah Shreve and Penn State’s Haleigh Washington.

Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, where first, second and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month. 

On the court, the East Bernard, Texas native leads the defense with a team-best 4.60 digs per set and has picked up double-digit dig numbers in 21-of-22 matches.
