HOUSTON, Texas – Sophomore Kirsten Berding, of the Memphis women’s track and field squad, has been named to the 2011 Conference USA All-Academic Squad, the league office announced Wednesday. The squad is chosen based on a vote by the league’s sports information contacts for the sport.

The list consists of student?]athletes who hold a minimum 3.2 GPA and have used a year of eligibility for the indoor and outdoor seasons.

Berding, a native of Muenster, Germany, will carry a 3.94 GPA into her junior year this upcoming fall. She is majoring in dietetics, with a minor in biology.

In her sophomore season, Berding scored twice in both the Conference USA Indoor and Outdoor Championship meets in the high jump. She established personal-bests in both the indoor (1.73m; 5’ 7.75”) and outdoor (1.74m; 5’ 8”) high jump events.

This past weekend, Berding went to her first NCAA East Regional meet, giving the U of M its first representative in the women’s high jump at the Regional meet since Chen Edri in 2007.

Berding is also the first Tiger placed on the All-Academic team since 2009.
