Binghamton's Lammert receives First-Team Academic All-District honor

Complete List of Academic Teams

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton volleyball co-captain Dawn Lammert was named to the District I Volleyball All-Academic First Team as presented by ESPN The Magazine and selected by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) on Thursday. Lammert was one of seven members selected to the first team and is now eligible for the Academic All-America Team to be named later this year.

"Dawn is very deserving of this award." said head volleyball coach Glenn Kiriyama. "She works very hard in both academics and volleyball. She's a very focused individual that finishes her work and does a good job at everything she does."

The graduate biology student is the only member of the America East to be named to an Academic All-District team. Last year, Lammert was chosen to the America East All-Academic team and had the highest GPA of all the honorees. Her current cumulative GPA is a 3.94. She graduated with a bachelor's of biology in just three years and currently has senior year athletic eligibility.

In 2008, Lammert led the America East in blocks and currently sits third in blocking this season. She is also just the third Bearcat at the Division I level to amass over 500 kills and 350 blocks in a career.

Lammert is the second Bearcat volleyball student-athlete to be named to the first team, following former teammate Megan Hoag (2006).
