Jade Machado Named to ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VIII Team

Nov. 6, 2008

Senior Jade Machado was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VIII Team on Thursday, marking the third straight year that she has been recognized.

Machado, who earned second-team accolades in 2006 and first-team honors in 2007, was a second-team honoree this year. Machado, a communications major with a minor in education, played in the first 16 matches this season, but is currently sidelined with a foot injury. This year, the senior is averaging 1.05 digs per set and has a pair of service aces.

The UCLA women's volleyball team has earned six ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VIII selections over the last three seasons. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) and have completed one full calendar year at their institution. The nominees on the ballot are voted on by members of CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
