In addition to being a multiple time All-American and multiple time all-conference winner, Amy Weststeyn can now add multiple time Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District winner to her resume.

The junior middle blocker out of Visalia, Calif. is the only Golden State Athletic Conference volleyball player to snag the all-district nod. She also earned the honor last season, along with Emily Weingartner.

Weststeyn is a journalism major who excels in the classroom and on the court, earning a qualifying grade point average while ranking top five in the nation in hitting percentage (.418) and top-35 in blocks (1.070 per set).

Athletes who are either a starter or key reserve and earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 over the course of their academic career are eligible to be nominated for the Capital One/CoSIDA All-American program. The first round of voting whittles this list of athletes down to the All-District teams, and then a second round of voting will pick from the list of All-District athletes to choose the Academic All-Americans. This list will be released Dec. 2.

Full list of District Four winners can be found below:

Amy Weststeyn – Biola

Stefani Sorensen – Eastern Oregon

Dana McGowan – Northwest Christian

Karly Stack – Eastern Oregon

Sarah Stoker – Northwest University

Kyndall Kordakis - Westminster
