University of Memphis senior pitcher Jenna Kubesch was selected to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District IV First Team on Thursday. It is the second year in a row the Weimar, Texas, native has earned the first team honor.
Kubesch graduated in May 2006 with a 3.94 GPA in communications and just completed her second semester in her master's program. She carries a 3.67 GPA in her graduate sport and leisure concentration and was a 2006 CoSIDA Academic District IV First Team selection.
