photoMURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Senior Matthew Langley has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District Team, as announced on Friday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). It marks the second year in a row Langley has earned the honor.

Last year, Langley earned Capital One Academic All-America Third Team accolades, in addition to being named an ITA Scholar-Athlete. He has maintained a 4.0 GPA as an exercise science major over the past two years and was named one of Middle Tennessee’s International Student-Athletes of the Year earlier this spring.

Not only has Langley been outstanding in the classroom, but his athletic prowess has led the Blue Raiders to three Sun Belt Championship titles in the past four years, including the past two seasons. The West Beach, Australia, native earned Most Outstanding Player honors at each of the past two conference tournaments. During his senior campaign, Langley played in the No. 2 singles position and finished with a 24-14 overall and 17-9 dual mark.

Langley becomes the first Blue Raider to earn multiple all-district honors. He is one of 10 student-athletes from District 3 now eligible for Academic All-American status.
