DURHAM, N.C.-Duke University juniors Sarah Bullard and Reka Zsilinszka both were selected to the ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District III Women's At-Large second team the organization announced on May 20. This is Zsilinszka's second time on the all-district squad, while Bullard is being honored for the first time.

The Blue Devils' top goal scorer for the women's lacrosse team this season, Bullard leads the team with 45 goals and ranks third overall in points with 55. Her 45 tallies are just one shy of climbing into the No. 10 spot on Duke's single-season goals list. An all-around threat on the field, she leads all Blue Devils in caused turnovers (26) and ranks third in ground balls (31). She captured All-ACC recognition in 2010 and was selected to the IWLCA/US Lacrosse All-America squad in 2009. A native of Needham, Mass., Bullard has 110 goals and 21 assists for 131 points in three seasons. A sociology major, she has been selected to the All-ACC Academic team in each of the past two seasons.

A two-time All-America, Zsilinszka is a leader on the Blue Devil women's tennis squad. Playing primarily in the No. 3 slot, she has compiled an 18-4 record in dual matches and a 28-11 overall record. Earlier this season, she became the 18th Duke women's tennis player to capture 100 singles victories on March 21 against William & Mary. Selected to the All-ACC team in each of the past three seasons, Zsilinszka has compiled a 109-25 singles record and an 82-31 mark in doubles action. She is one of two Blue Devils in history to post at 40-plus wins in at least two seasons.  A history major, Zsilinszka was the NCAA Tournament Most Valuable Player in 2009 and has been selected to the All-ACC Academic Team twice.

The Blue Devil women's lacrosse team returns to action in the NCAA Quarterfinals at No.2 Northwestern on May 22 at 2 p.m. The women's tennis team defeated UCLA in the NCAA round of 16 on May 20 to move into the quarterfinal round against North Carolina on May 22 at 2 p.m., in Athens, Ga.
