EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - Liz Kooistra (Sr.-Lakeville, Minn.) has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA)/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America Women's Track and Field/Cross Country First Team College Division, CoSIDA officials announced today.
Kooistra, who won the 400-meter dash national title at the 2009 NCAA Division III Outdoor Championship, wrapped up her collegiate career with a 3.49 cumulative grade point average. She majored in psychology while she minored in Spanish.
Kooistra becomes only the second Blugold to earn recognition as a CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Women's Track and Field/Cross Country first team Academic All-American.
