Lastra Named to Academic All-District Team

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State’s Angie Lastra was named to the ESPN the Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District 7 third team in an announcement made Thursday. It is the first Academic All-District honor for a Wildcat volleyball student-athlete since the 2004 season.


Lastra, a life sciences/pre-med major, has played a key role for the Wildcats this season. The product of Carolina, Puerto Rico has tallied 439 digs this season and is third in K-State history for career digs with 1,422. She also switched positions during the Big 12 season, moving to outside hitter and recording 136 kills in just nine matches at the position.


Lastra is the 10th Wildcat to earn an Academic All-District citation and the first since Gabby Guerre was named to the second team in the 2004 season. Former Wildcat Cari Jensen is the only two-time honoree in school history.


K-State will be in action on Saturday at No. 15 Oklahoma. Match time is 1 p.m. in Norman.
