BATON ROUGE, La- Kristen Nuss, a standout on LSU’s Beach Volleyball Team, was named to the CoSIDA First Team Academic All-District on Thursday.
The senior received many awards on the court for the Tigers, as well as academic honors for her accomplishments in the classroom. Nuss recently graduated LSU with a degree in Kinesiology and finished with a 3.65 cumulative GPA.
Nuss’ 139 career victories stand alone as the most wins in the history of college beach volleyball. She was a dominant force in the sand throughout her college career and helped lift LSU Beach Volleyball onto the national stage, including a berth in the NCAA Beach Volleyball Championships. She closed out her incredible career for the Tigers with a 48-match win streak.
The 2020-21 Academic All-District® Men’s and Women’s At-Large Teams, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances in athletic competition and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.
First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America honorees will be announced in early August.
