Madison Weekly, a member of the Northern Iowa women's basketball program, is named to the 2016-2017 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District women's basketball team Thursday.

This accomplishment was not the only accomplishment the Atkins, Iowa, native earned during her time at Northern Iowa, as she is a current finalist for the 2017 Senior CLASS award and earned the 2016 Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. Weekly is also holding a 3.82 GPA as an accounting major.

Weekly is currently in Northern Iowa’s top-10 all-time in career points with 1,604 and is in the top-10 three-pointers (233) and assists (301). Her 15.5 points per game this season is why the Panthers are in second place in the MVC with a record of 9-2.

If Weekly can maintain a 3.30 grade point average and compete in 50 percent of the Panthers' games, she, as an Academic All-District honoree, will advance to this year's CoSIDA Academic All-America Team.
