Joseph Earns Academic All-District® Honor

GREENWOOD, Ind. -- Meredith College lacrosse standout Carlee Joseph earned selection to the Academic All-District® women's at-large team as announced Thursday from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The program recognizes the nation's student-athletes who perform at the top of their game both academically and athletically.

Joseph maintains a 3.86 grade point average with a major in mathematics. She is also a part of Meredith's dual-degree engineering program with nearby N.C. State University, thus will receive two degrees over a five-year period.

In addition to her strong academic standing, Joseph dominates the offensive categories among USA South Athletic Conference women's lacrosse players and earned her second Player of the Year honor as a result. She boasts 66 goals, 84 points, and 119 shots, as the team heads to Virginia to open the NCAA Tournament versus nationally ranked Mary Washington Saturday, May 13.

Joseph also collected Meredith's first program-wide Athlete of the Year honor earlier this month.

To be nominated for the Academic All-District® program, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution. Nominated athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games at the position listed on the nomination form. No student-athlete is eligible until he/she has completed one full calendar year at his/her current institution and has reached sophomore athletic eligibility.
