🏊♀️ Steward Selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District VII At-Large Team
Lawrence, Kan. – Kansas swimmer Kate Steward was selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District VII Team for at-large selections as announced by the organization Thursday.
Steward excelled in the pool setting the school record in the 200-yard IM at the 2021 Big 12 Championships with a final time of 1:58.00 to place second during her junior campaign. She also finished second in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:01.24) and 200-yard breaststroke (2:10.86) at the Big 12 Championships to qualify for the Olympic Trials. During the 2020 fall season, Steward was named the Big 12 Swimmer of the Week on Nov. 24 after breaking a pair of Robinson Natatorium pool records.
The Bartlesville, Oklahoma, native finished the season being named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team for the second time in her career after being a 2019 Academic All-Big 12 Rookie Team selection. Earlier this week, she was honored for the third time by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America as a Scholar All-America honorable mention.
This is Steward’s first CoSIDA Academic All-District honor.
First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America honorees will be announced in early August.
The CoSIDA Academic All-District teams are divided into geographic districts across the United States and Canada.
