Three Lady Pioneers Named to CoSIDA Academic All-District® Team

Barta, Domljanovic, and Lopez earn honors

(Miles City, MT) – Three members of the Miles Community College women’s basketball team have been named to the Capital One/CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors Association) Academic All-District Team.  Sophomores Kassie Barta (Fairfield), Ivana Domljanovic (Split, Croatia), and Christen Lopez (West Jordan, UT) have earned the honors as they were selected as members of the District 6 College Division team. 

The 2012 Capital One Academic All-District ® Women’s Basketball Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One became the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA’s Academic All-America teams programs in 2011.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must have a 3.30 cumulative GPA and been enrolled at their institution a full year. Sports information directors vote on the makeup of the first-team with recipients moving onto the national ballot where they could receive Academic All-American honors.

This is the first year that the College Division has not included NCAA Division II and Division III institutions as they have their own divisions.  The college division has combined two-year, NAIA, and Canadian institutions. 

Barta, a 5’ 9” wing from Fairfield High School, is currently tied for the team high in scoring, averaging 10.7 contest this season.  Lopez, a 5’ 4” point guard from Kearns High School, is currently leading Region IX with 99 assists and is 20th in the nation with 5.2 per contest.  Domljanovic, a 6’ 2” center from Croatia is currently third on the squad in scoring with just under nine points per game and second in rebounding with 4.6 per game.  All three are on pace to graduate this spring with an associates degree.
