BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — The University of Michigan’s Maddie O’Reilly (Gr., Villanova, Pa./Episcopal Academy) is one of two women’s Division I water polo athletes to earn recognition on the 2022 Academic All-District® Women’s At-Large Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

The award recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances in athletic competition and in the classroom. Student-athletes must have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.30 and be a starter or contributor to be considered for accolades.

The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

Women’s At-Large honorees are nominated from the following women’s sports: beach volleyball, bowling, rowing, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming & diving, tennis and water polo.

First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. First, second and third team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in mid-June.

A Division I District 5 selection from schools in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, O’Reilly joins with Stanford University’s Mackenzie Fischer to account for the pair of Division I honorees.  Overall, four water polo athletes earned recognition at every level as Kate Immergluck of Pomona-Pitzer Colleges and Eleanor Michaud (Jr., Long Grove, Ill./Adlai E. Stevenson) of Macalester College claimed Division III nods.

A 2021 CoSIDA Academic All-America Division I Third Team honoree, O’Reilly, who graduated with her masters degree in management, earns her second CoSIDA Academic All-District honor following her inaugural nod in 2021.

This season, O’Reilly was named to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Championship All-Tournament Second Team and earned Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Championship Most Valuable Player (MVP) honors.

During her time in the Maize & Blue, she helped the Wolverines to four NCAA Championship appearances and CWPA Championships (2018, 2019, 2021, 2022), while earning ACWPC All-America second team honors and CWPA Player of the Year honors in 2021. O’Reilly is a three-time ACWPC All-Academic team honoree, a three-time CWPA Scholar Athlete and a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.
