FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State sophomore Caitlin Duffy has been named first-team Capital One Academic All-District 7 by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The 5-11 guard is now eligible for national Academic All-American honor.

“This is an honor well deserved,” praised Head Coach Ryun Williams. “Caitlin has been exceptional for Colorado State both in the classroom and on the floor, and nobody works harder. We are extremely proud of her.”

Duffy, a significant reserve player in the Rams lineup, averages 11.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. She leads the Mountain West in free-throw percentage at .849, and ranks third in three-point percentage with 41.1 percent accuracy from beyond the arc.

The South Dakota native is a part of the first-team honorees who will be forwarded to the national ballot to be voted upon in February. A biological science major, Duffy now carries a 3.720 cumulative GPA.

Duffy is one of two players from the MW to receive the District 7 honor, joining Utah State’s Jennifer Schlott. She is the first Ram honoree since Lindsay Thomas, who moved on to become a three-time Academic All-American from 2004-06. Thomas remains the only three-time selection in school history.

To be eligible for Academic All-America consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her current institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director.
