Chattanooga volleyball senior Christina Teter (Signal Mountain, Tenn.) earned CoSIDA Capitol One Academic All-American honors Thursday. Selected as a Division I Third Team All-American, the Mocs middle blocker is the first student-athlete in the program's history to achieve academic All-American status.
Teter is the third student-athlete in as many years to be recognized by CoSIDA as an Academic All-American, following track and field's Chris Berry (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) in 2012 and David Moore (Sarnia, Ontario) in 2011.
In the classroom, the senior boasts a 4.0 GPA. She was one of just five student-athletes from around the country named an Academic All-American to hold a 4.0 or higher, and was one of three biology majors listed.
In 2012, Teter led the Mocs with 262 kills, averaging 2.36 kills per set. The 6-foot-2 middle blocker also paced Chattanooga with 0.76 blocks per set, totaling 84.0 blocks on the season.
"What an honor for Christina," Head Coach Travis Filar said. "She is an amazing example of a student-athlete. She goes out and gives it all she has on the court, but she also stays focused on school and makes studies her top priority. She has set a great example for her team mates and we couldn't be any prouder."
Teter finishes her career at UTC with 745 kills, ranking 18th, and 222 blocks to finish 11th all-time in program history.
