COLLEGE STATION -- Jen Moore of Texas A&M has been named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VI Women’s Volleyball Second Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced today.

Moore, a senior libero from Allen, Texas, boasts a 3.92 cumulative grade-point average while majoring in communication. Moore, who is making her first appearance on the academic all-district team, is slated to graduate in May.

On the court, Moore has been the Aggies’ designated libero in every game this season and has helped lead A&M to an 18-8 record. The team captain has reached double figures in digs in 16 matches and ranks second on the team with a 3.11 dig average for the full season.

Moore has been a mainstay in the Aggies’ back row since her sophomore season and was voted both A&M’s Best Defensive Player and Most Inspirational Player in 2006. She is a three-time Texas A&M/Verizon Academic Scholar Athlete and is a two-time member of the Academic All-Big 12 Volleyball first team.

The academic all-district team was selected by members of CoSIDA in District VI, which encompasses the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. To be eligible for academic all-district honors, student-athletes must be a starter or key reserve, have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade-point average and have achieved at least sophomore status.

Moore and the Aggies return to action Friday as they take on No. 3 Texas in the State Farm Lone Star Showdown. The match begins at 6:30 p.m. at Gregory Gym in Austin.
