Howard and O'Grady Named to 2020-21 CoSIDA Academic All-District® Softball Team
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— Not only were Andrea Howard and Cameryn O’Grady stellar on the softball field for The University of New Mexico in 2021, the duo were also exceptional in the classroom, earning a spot on the 2021 Academic All-District® Softball Team.
Thursday’s announcement marked the second career CoSIDA accolade for Howard and the first for O’Grady. The standout student-athletes both carried a 4.0 GPA in the 2020-21 academic year, with Howard majoring in biology and O’Grady in the public administration graduate program.
Howard was also named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team and Second Team All-American as a sophomore and both O’Grady and Howard have been named UNM Scholar-Athlete every year.
The 2020-21 Academic All-District® Softball Teams, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes softball honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.
The selections were divided into geographic districts for a total of eight districts, with New Mexico in District 7 with Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas universities.
First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. First- and second-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in late July.
