DURHAM, N.C. - Senior Jessica Lyden has been named to the Capital One Academic All-America Division I Women's At-Large First Team, as announced by CoSIDA on Thursday. Lyden, who graduated in May with a degree in psychology, is the first member of the Duke Swimming & Diving program to garner Academic All-America First Team honors.

A native of Lexington, Ky., Lyden joins Katie Ness (Second Team, 2006) as the only other Duke swimmer or diver to earn Academic All-America recognition. Lyden was also selected to the Capital One Academic All-District III Women's At-Large Team in May and has been named to the All-ACC Academic Team twice in her career. She is a three-time ACC Academic Honor Roll selection and boasts a 3.95 GPA.  

Lyden closed out her four years at Duke by capturing the 2012 ACC title in women's 3-meter springboard diving, earning the first All-ACC honors of her career. She also notched 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.
