by Frank Mercogliano

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –– New Mexico senior women’s tennis player Myu Kageyama was named to the 2021-22 Academic All-District Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Kageyama was a first-team selection in District 7 to the At-Large Team, which honors athletes from sports without a sport-specific award who excel both academically and athletically.

As one of the 15 women selected to the first team in District 7, Kageyama will now be on the ballot for the Academic All-America At-Large teams, which will be announced in June.  District VII for CoSIDA comprises all NCAA Division institutions in the states of Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas.

A business administration major with a 4.00 grade-point-average, Kageyama was the top winner on the 2021-22 squad, going 22-10 in singles and 19-12 in doubles for the Lobos, who finished 11-11 on the season.  Kageyama is looking to be the first women’s tennis player at UNM to earn Academic All-America honors since 2002 when Courtney Choate was named a First Team Academic All-American.  She would be the just the third women’s tennis player all-time at UNM to earn the honor.

To be eligible for Academic All-America/All-District honors, an athlete must have a minimum 3.30 cumulative grade-point-average, be a starter or key reserve, and be at least a sophomore academically
