Smolinski Selected For CoSIDA Academic All-District I Accolades

Smolinski Selected For CoSIDA Academic All-District I Springfield, Mass. - November 8, 2013 - Springfield College women's volleyball standout Tessa Smolinski has once again been selected as CoSIDA Academic All-District I as voted upon by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

A senior outside hitter from Hebron, Conn., Smolinski has recorded a perfect 4.00 GPA to date while concentrating on her major of Communication Disorders.

In order to qualify for CoSIDA All-Academic status, one must be an upper classman and have a GPA of 3.30 or above. This marks the second-straight season that Smolinski has garnered this academic accolade.

Smolinski has had another sensational season on the court this year in leading the Pride to the top seed in the upcoming New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference Championship this weekend. This year, she has totaled a team-best 325 kills on a .318 hitting percentage to go along with a team-high 280 digs. She has also chipped in 27 service aces and 26 blocks for a Pride team that owns a 23-5 record this year.

Two years ago, Smolinski was named winner of the prestigious Elite 89 Award, presented to the player at the NCAA Elite 8 with the highest grade point average.
