Boise State University womens golfer Katie Street was named to ESPN The Magazines Academic All-America team last month, as voted by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

The Decatur High School graduate recently graduated from Boise State with a 4.0 grade-point average and a bachelors degree in business economics. She was also named a Top 10 Scholar for the Class of 2007 by the Boise State University Alumni Association.
As a four-year member of the womens golf team, Street recorded 21 top-25 finishes, placing her first on the Bronco career list. Street earned second-team, all-conference honors in 2006.
