Nov. 7, 2013
MILWAUKEE -- Senior setter Elizabeth Koberstein of the Marquette University women's volleyball team was named to the Capital One Academic All-District 6 Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Thursday afternoon.
Koberstein, a nursing major and team captain with a 3.77 grade point average, currently is averaging 11.86 assists per set, good for first in the BIG EAST Conference and sixth in the nation. The Madison, Wis., native had a season-high 69 assists in a victory against DePaul on Sept. 28 and was named the 2013 BIG EAST Preseason Co-Player of the Year.
Koberstein has registered 2,392 assists at Marquette, placing her fifth all-time at MU in just under two seasons with the program.
Koberstein follows in the footsteps of former teammate Danielle Carlson, who in 2012 was also named to the Capital One Academic All-District 6 team and eventually was selected to the Capital One Academic All-America Second Team.
With academic all-district honors, Koberstein advances to the Capital One Academic All-America voting stage, the results of which will be released on Thursday, Dec. 12.
