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

Street earned second-team honors in the Women’s At-Large University Division. The Decatur High School graduate recently graduated from Boise State with a 4.0 grade-point average and a bachelor’s 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 women’s 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.

Sports eligible for the at-large team are bowling, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, rowing, skiing, swimming, tennis and water polo.

• Ashley Osman, a senior on the Western Washington University softball team, was named to the 2007 Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) academic all-star team. Osman is a Thomas Jefferson High School graduate and was picked for the team for the second time. She is a physical education major and has a 3.34 grade-point average.

Osman has a .327 batting average (48-for-147) with a GNAC-leading 36 runs batted in, five home runs and 17 runs scored. She has committed just two errors in 295 fielding chances (.993).

• A total of 50 Eastern Washington University student-athletes have been honored on the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team for winter quarter 2007, including 2004 Decatur graduate Shaun Helm, who is a distance runner on the Eagle track team.

To qualify, student-athletes must have at least a 3.20 accumulative grade-point average and must also have participated in at least half of the team’s competitions.

For the fall quarter of 2006, 43 EWU student-athletes were honored for five sports: volleyball, soccer, football and men’s and women’s cross country. Last year, a total of 138 EWU student-athletes were honored in the 2005-06 school year. In the 2004-05 school year, 140 Eagle student-athletes were honored on Big Sky All-Academic teams.
