BUFFALO, N.Y. - Nov. 8 - Korin Frantz, a sophomore on the Erie Community College volleyball team, was named today to the Academic All-District 1 College Division team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). She carries a 3.97 grade-point average in criminal justice/law enforcement.
Frantz, who appeared in 27 matches this past season, finished fourth on the Kats with 49 kills. She added 12 service aces and 62 digs as ECC went 21-11. As a freshman, Frantz had 68 kills to rank fourth on the squad. ECC was ranked for seven weeks in 2011 and finished the season as the Region III Tournament runners-up. She was also named the 2012 ECC softball team’s most valuable player after hitting .363 and adding a team-high seven doubles and two home runs.
As a result of being named to the all-district team, Frantz is now under consideration for the Capital One Academic All-America® Team as selected by CoSIDA.
Since 1952, CoSIDA has honored more than 20,000 outstanding student-athletes with this prestigious award, which became known as the Capital One Academic All-America® in 2011. The program used to select teams from just two divisions -- the University Division, comprised of Division I schools; and the College Division, which included Division II, Division III, NAIA schools, and 2-year colleges. To better honor the diversity of collegiate talent, however, the program was expanded in 2011 to include four divisions: Division I, Division II, Division III, and the College division that includes NAIA, two-year colleges, and Canadian schools.
