KU’s Kastor Claims Academic All-District Honors
LAWRENCE, Kan. – University of Kansas senior forward Caroline Kastor was named a Capital One Academic All-District© selection by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Thursday afternoon. Kastor was named to the second team of the NCAA Division I’s seventh district for the second-consecutive season.
The Capital One Academic All-District© teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. To be eligible for the team, student-athletes must maintain a cumulative grade point average above 3.3 and have participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s contests.
Kastor, who also earned spots on the Academic All-Big 12 First Team the last two seasons, was named Academic All-District for the second time in her career. The senior out of Wichita, Kan., is majoring in classical antiquities and leads the Jayhawks in points (15) and goals (6) this season. This season, Kastor became the No. 2 goal scorer in school history after tallying her 26th career goal against Baylor on Oct. 20.
Kansas (6-10-2) will play the Oklahoma Sooners Friday, Nov. 1 in Lawrence for the right to earn the eighth and final spot in next week’s Big 12 Championship to be hosted in Kansas City. KU and OU will kick off at 3 p.m., a game that will be televised on Time Warner Cable Sports Channel and ESPN3.
