WACO, Texas -
Baylor senior guard Makenzie Robertson (McGregor, Texas/Midway HS) has been selected first-team Capital One Academic All-District® 7 by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), and is now eligible for national Academic All-American honors.
First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected next month.
Capital One recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.
Robertson is the second Lady Bear basketball player to be named to the first team and advance to the national ballot. Steffanie Blackmon was a first-team selection in 2005 and went on to earn third-team Academic All-American honors.
Robertson recently graduated from Baylor with a marketing degree, graduating with a 3.84 GPA, and is now pursuing her MBA at Baylor. The 5-9 guard has started all 20 of the ninth-ranked Baylor games and is averaging 7.9 points and 3.6 rebounds an outing. Over Baylor's last two contests, Robertson has averaged 14.5 points per game, including shooting 52.9 percent (9-17) from 3-point range.
