Mihalko Clinches CoSIDA’s Top Academic Award
Riverside, Calif. (March 1, 2017) – Cassidy Mihalko added another accolade to her senior season when
the California Baptist University guard received the 2016-17 CoSIDA Academic All-America
of the Year award on March 1.
Mihalko was the first Lancer to earn the top Academic All-America award from CoSIDA when she made the first team last season. Of the six first-team Academic All-America selections, Mihalko was the only one who earned the honor two years running. The award recognizes student-athletes across the United States and Canada as top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Earlier this season, Mihalko became the third Lancer to score 2,000 points. At 2,097 all-time points, she ranks second in that statistic in CBU history.
Postseason play begins this week, as the Lancers earned a first-round bye in the PacWest Tournament. They will face the winner of Thursday's fourth and fifth-seed game between Notre Dame de Namur University and Azusa Pacific University, respectively, on Friday at 5 p.m.
