ORONO, Maine — Sigi Koizar and Liz Wood of the University of Maine have been selected for the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District 1 Women’s Basketball First Team.

The CoSIDA teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. UMaine was among only five Division I schools to place two or more student-athletes on an All-District First Team.

Koizar and Wood are among only eight women recognized in Division I.

Koizar posted a 3.96 grade point average during calendar 2015 and Wood earned a 3.95. They were the two highest GPAs on the All-District 1 team. Koizar is a junior majoring in biology while Wood, a senior, is studying biology/pre-medical in the honors college.

With their first-team honors, Koizar and Wood will now be placed on the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot. Three All-America teams will be chosen from among the district winners later this month.

Lauren Hayden of the University of New England, a senior, is among six District 1 picks in Division II.

Two Mainers were recognized among men’s student-athletes. Graduate student Keegan Hyland of South Portland and senior Tyler McFarland of Rockport, both of Bentley College, also were All-District 1 choices in Division II.

Hyland owns a 3.92 GPA while pursuing a Masters of Business Administration and McFarland has a 3.46 in mathematics.

Senior Lucas Hausman of Bowdoin College in Brunswick was a Division III All-District 1 honoree.

This is the fifth year of the expanded Academic All-America program, which honors student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and a College division.
