COLUMBIA, KY - A pair of Lindsey Wilson College volleyball student-athletes have been recognized to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-District Women's Volleyball Team in District 2. Sarah Anderson and Nadelina Nesheva were chosen as part of the College Division portion of District 2.

Anderson and Nesheva are two of seven total selections in this specific classification.

District 2 includes student-athletes from from Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana and Tennessee. In the College Division, institutions from the NAIA, Canada, two-year schools and others are all represented.

To be considered for this honor, a student-athlete must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30, be a sophomore or higher in their academic and athletic standings and be a starter or key reserve on a varsity team.

The nominations are submitted by the student-athlete's institution's sports information director, and from there are voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

First-team Academic All-District Women's Volleyball selections automatically advance to the Academic All-America Team ballot, where the first, second and third-team All-America honorees will be chosen later this month.

For Anderson, this honor represents the second of her career after also earning All-District and NAIA Scholar-Athlete recognition in the fall of 2013.

Now in her senior season, the Carrollton, Texas, native is a human services and psychophysiology major with a 3.65 GPA. Anderson has appeared in 94 sets for Lindsey Wilson this season, totaling 168 kills total along the way.

Nesheva has played in 90 sets this year for the Blue Raiders and leads Lindsey Wilson with 282 total kills this season. Hailing from Sofia, Bulgaria, the senior is a media studies major with a 3.93 GPA.
