BYU women’s volleyball player Amy Boswell was added to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District First Team this past Thursday.

“Its exciting!” Boswell said. “Its nice to have those academics pay off. I’m a nerd to the max so I will take it.”
Boswell who is a junior and a nursing major currently has an impressive 3.90 GPA through her first three years at BYU. Boswell is one of two juniors playing volleyball in the west and Canada to be named to the team. The selection process for the team is from a vote of various sports information directors throughout the country. Boswell will further advance to the All-American First, Second, and Third team voting which won’t take place until later this month.
This isn’t the first time Boswell has seen academic awards come her way in her collegiate career. Just last year she was named the Elite 89 recipient at the NCAA Volleyball Championships because she had the highest GPA among the final four teams.
Statistically Boswell is No. 18 in the nation and No. 1 in the WCC with most blocks per set at 1.45. She is a major asset to the No. 17 BYU women’s volleyball team who is currently 18-3 and looking to be a major competitor in upcoming tournament play.
