PROVO -- BYU middle blocker Lindsy Hartsock was honored this week for her success both on the court and in the classroom as she was named to the CoSIDA Academic District VIII First Team.

"I'm truly honored by this recognition," said Hartsock. "Academics have always been important to me. I have a great support system here at BYU with great professors, coaches and administrators that has really enabled me to be successful."

Hartsock has been a key contributor to BYU's success this season as she has been named to two all-tournament teams while leading the Mountain West Conference in hitting percentage. She is also currently ranked 18th nationally in both hitting efficiency and blocks per game.

The 6-foot-4 junior from Inkom, Idaho, is double-majoring in public health and home and family living and has a 3.60 grade point average.

"This is a wonderful recognition for Lindsy's commitment to excelling as a student-athlete," said BYU head coach Jason Watson. "Her accomplishments in the classroom are equally as important as her contributions to the success of our team on the court."

As a result of her first-team all-district recognition, Hartsock is now eligible for Academic All-America accolades, which will be announced on Nov. 28.
