HAMMOND, Ind. – Purdue University Calumet junior Lori Haas has been named to the Capital One College Division Academic All-District 2 women’s at-large squad for her efforts in the classroom and on the courts this season.
Haas (Bismarck, Ill./Bismarck-Henning) advances to the Capital One Academic All-America national ballot, with the Academic All-America Team scheduled for release June 8.
Haas finished the 2014-15 season with a school-record 11 wins, compiling an 11-3 overall mark at No. 1 singles, including a 6-2 mark in conference matches. Her other loss was to Division I Wayne State’s Yasha Moore. Her play also earned her another honor – the first all-Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference honor in program history.
A history major, Haas is also a standout in the classroom with a 4.0 grade point average.
The Peregrines completed their best-ever mark in the program’s fifth season of competition, finishing 9-6 overall. That mark included Purdue Calumet’s first-ever postseason victory, an 8-1 win over Calumet College of St. Joseph in the CCAC Quarterfinals.
Haas marks the second CoSIDA Capital One All-District selection this season for Purdue Calumet, joining women’s soccer member Rachel Shmagranoff (Munster, Ind./Munster), who went on to become the first CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-American in school history.
