CoSIDA Academic All-District

RUSTON - For the second consecutive season, Louisiana Tech junior Erin Kipp earned Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District honors.

Kipp is one of just three players from the Western Athletic Conference to earn the prestigious honors, joining New Mexico State's Amber Olive and Seattle's Allegra Wilde. Kipp now advances to the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

A biology major from Bullard, Texas, Kipp earned her spot on the All-District 6 Team. Kipp carries a 3.82 grade point average as a biology major as the pitcher/utility is batting .344 on the year with three home runs, 19 RBI and 25 runs scored. She is also one of the nation's leaders in doubles with 13 and has successfully stolen 11 of 15 bases on the year.

In order to be eligible for Academic All-District and All-America honors, a player must have completed at least one academic year, must be a starter or significant reserve, must have a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average and must have completed at least one full academic year at her institution. Voting is done by members of CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
