FAYETTEVILLE Nikki Daniels has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District women's at-large team, as announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). She received Second Team accolades. The recognition is the first career Academic All-America honor for Daniels.

Daniels was awarded this season for her 3.9 cumulative grade-point average as a finance major. Having just completed her junior season with the Razorbacks, Daniels was member of the 2013 SEC Fall Honor Roll.

Daniels became the first Razorback All-American in the 100 breaststroke, capping an incredible season with a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championships with a time of 59.18. She broke the school record in the 100 breaststroke three times with her top time of 59.11 coming in the prelims at the NCAA Championship. Daniels’ performance helped Arkansas place 26th, the best program finish since 1990. Daniels also was a huge part of Arkansas’ relay success, contributing to the 200 and 400 medley relays, helping the Razorbacks to an undefeated record in the 200 medley relay in dual meet action.

To be eligible for Academic All-America consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his current institution and be nominated by his sports information director. Since the program’s inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 15,000 student-athletes in Division I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.

Daniels is one of 15 women from the SEC to garner Academic All-America recognition.
