SAINT LEO, Fla. – Two Saint Leo female student-athletes were named to the 2015-16 Academic All-District At-Large team selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, as announced by the CoSIDA office on Thursday.
The two chosen were Marie Coors of women’s golf and Marine Beugre-Guyot of women’s tennis. Both Coors and Beugre-Guyot will be considered for the Academic All-America teams, which will be announced on June 8.
Saint Leo was joined by West Florida, Barry, Lynn, and Nova Southeastern as schools with two student-athletes named to the Academic All-District squad. Altogether, the Sunshine State Conference had 11 of the 13 spots claimed.
Coors, a 2015 CoSIDA At-Large Second Team Academic All-American selection, returned to the list after wrapping up her junior year with a 4.00 GPA in economics with an accounting focus.

In 2015, Coors was a WGCA All-American Scholar, and she is a four-time Saint Leo Dean’s List student.
Beugre-Guyot earned her first Academic All-District honor this season after maintaining a 3.96 GPA while majoring in biology.
