DURHAM, N.C. - Senior diver Jessica Lyden was named to the Capital One Academic All-District III Women's At-Large Team, as announced Friday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The selection is the first for Lyden, who earned a 3.95 grade point average as a psychology major at Duke.

Lyden is the third Blue Devil in program history to garner Academic All-District recognition, joining Katie Ness (2005-06) and Ashley Twichell (2011).

A three-time Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Honor Roll selection, Lyden was also named to the All-ACC Academic Team in 2009 and 2012. The Lexington, Ky., native closed out her four years at Duke by winning the 2012 ACC title in women's 3-meter diving, capturing the first All-ACC honors of her career. She also recorded a ninth-place finish on the 3-meter board at this year's NCAA Zone B Diving Championships and won the same event at the 2011 Nike Cup Invitational. Lyden owns personal-best scores of 325.45 on the 1-meter board and 365.95 at the 3-meter height.

With her selection to the Academic All-District Team, Lyden is now eligible for Academic All-America honors.
