BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College senior Elizabeth Cameron (El Dorado Hills, Calif.) was honored for her work on the court and in the classroom when she was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District team late last week.
Cameron, who is the program's first CoSIDA Academic All-District selection, is now eligible for the Academic All-America team, which will be announced in early December.
The 2019 New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) and New England Women's Volleyball Association (NEWVA) Player of the Year, Cameron averaged 9.66 assists, 2.43 digs, 0.94 kills and 0.42 blocks per set in 34 matches this fall for the 33-2 Beavers. She set new career highs in assists per set, digs per set and digs (253) as Babson recorded the fifth highest hitting percentage (.262) in Division III and the best in program history this season.
The most decorated player in school history, Cameron is a two-time American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-America honorable mention selection, a three-time AVCA and NEWVA all-region honoree, and the only player in Babson annals to earn four straight all-conference first-team accolades. She ranks first all-time with 3,921 assists, fifth in service aces (158) and ninth in total blocks (212), and is the only player in Babson history to record more than 3,000 assists, 900 digs, 400 kills and 200 blocks.
A three-year captain, Cameron helped the Beavers win two NEWMAC Tournament titles and make three NCAA Tournament appearances, which includes advancing to the national quarterfinals for the first time in program history in 2018.
Since 1952, CoSIDA has honored more than 20,000 outstanding student-athletes across the NCAA. To be eligible, a student-athlete must be a starter or key reserve, maintain a GPA of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale, and be in their second year academically at their current institution.
