MOSCOW - Idaho sophomore Alyssa Charlston was one of six women's basketball players in a nine state region to earn first-team Academic All-District honors, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Charlston, a native of Sammamish, Wash., maintains a 4.00 Grade Point Average as a broadcasting and digital media major, and is the only sophomore among District 7 honorees, which includes Division I players from the states of Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.

The 6-foot-1 post has been Idaho's most productive player this season, leading the team with 14.5 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, while shooting a team-best 47.5 percent from the field. Charlston has scored in double figures in 17 of Idaho's 22 games and has six double-doubles on the season. Charlston also ranks in the top five in the Western Athletic Conference in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.

The first-team all-district honor automatically advances Charlston to the ballot for CoSIDA Academic All-America, where first-, second- and third-team All-American honorees will be selected later this month.
