Edgewood's Scheele named First Team Academic All-District

While Megan Scheele piles up records and milestones on the court, she also manages to be an exemplary student-athlete off the court. The Edgewood College junior was named to the 2007-08 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Women’s Basketball Team. Scheele was a first team selection for District V in the College Division. The College Division consists of colleges and universities from NCAA Divisions II and III, and the NAIA.

By being named to the All-District first team, Scheele, from New Glarus, Wis., is now eligible for Academic All-American honors. The Academic All-American® Women’s Basketball Team will be released on February 26. Scheele is the second Edgewood College women's basketball player to be named all-district in two years, as Jordane Kittoe received second team honors last season.

Scheele holds a 3.89 grade point average in Elementary Education with a minor in Art. She has been dominant on the court this season, ranking third in the nation and first in the Northern Athletics Conference in scoring at 23.3 points per game. Scheele is also second in the league in rebounding, pulling down 11.1 boards per game. She is currently fifth on Edgewood College's all-time scoring list with 1,399 career points and will finish her career as the school record holder in field goal percentage.
