Colorado State sophomore center Lindsay Thomas was today named to the 2004 Academic All-District VII CoSIDA Women’s Basketball First Team and will be forwarded to the national ballot.
Thomas was one of six student-athletes named to the First Team in District VII, which includes schools from Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. Thomas is an English and Spanish double major with a perfect 4.00 grade-point average and is academically a senior in class standing.
Joining Thomas on the First Team are Dayna Finch from Creighton, Laurie Koehn from Kansas State, Brooklynn Lorenzen from Montana, Nicole Ohlde from Kansas State and Anne O’Neil from Iowa State.
Thomas leads the Rams in rebounding, averaging 7.5 per game and is third on the team with 12.3 points per game. She also leads the Mountain West Conference, shooting .534 from the field and recorded the fourth double-double of her career in the Rams’ last game at BYU on Saturday.
The six student-athletes on the ballot will now advance to the national ballot with the student-athletes from the other seven regions where they will be voted on for Academic All-American by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Colorado State will be in action tonight against San Diego State in Moby Arena. Tip is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
