Trio Earns Women's At-Large Academic All-District Nods


A pair of beach volleyball student-athletes, plus one from the Rifle team, have been named on the women's at-large academic all-district teams, as selected by the College Sports Communicators.

MSU honorees include beach volleyball's Trinity Miller and Andrea Grimes and Grace Weber from Rifle.

The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) began the distinguished Academic All-America® program in 1952, and since then, has honored thousands of deserving student-athletes from numerous sports across all divisions with these elite Academic All-America® scholar-athlete honors. In 2022, CoSIDA rebranded itself as the College Sports Communicators (CSC). In 2022, the guidelines were updated to include more representation on the All-District teams. Sports have limitations to the number of athletes that can be nominated and the minimum grade-point average was raised to 3.50.

Miller, a senior from Fairfield, Ohio, was a co-winner of the department's Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year with a perfect 4.0 GPA in learning and behavioral disorders. She was named Second-Team All-OVC, appeared in 22 matches this season and finishing with a record of 12-10 as No. 1, paired with Sydney Wyman. Miller's career victory total ranks fourth in program history.

Grimes has posted a 3.92 GPA in neuroscience. The Lebanon, Ohio, native appeared in every match this season. She finished with a record of 16-9 between both the fourth and fifth pairs and had an OVC record of 6-3.

Weber, from Clear Spring, Md., has a 3.62 GPA in exercise science. She was First-Team All-OVC in Air Rifle for the third consecutive season. Weber set an all-time program Air Rifle record with 596 against Jacksonville State. She finished with a combined average of 1163.39, which was third highest on the team and led team with an Air Rifle season average of 591.85.
