Christine Lux Named ESPN The Magazine Second Team Academic All-American

After receiving All-America honors in 2009, Lux was named an Academic All-American in 2010.

May 26, 2010

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame softball first baseman Christine Lux (Glendale Heights, Ill.), the program's career home run leader, has been named to the 2010 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Second Team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Lux becomes Notre Dame softball's first Academic All-America selection since Stephanie Brown in 2006. She is the 10th Irish player to garner one of the program's 18 Academic All-America citations.

To be eligible for Academic All-America status, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have received sophomore athletic and academic standing at his/her current institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director. Since 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 14,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA covering all NCAA championship sports

The accounting major is a two-time academic all-district choice, two-time NFCA all-region choice, three-time all-BIG EAST Conference performer and was twice named to the BIG EAST All-Tournament team. Furthermore, Lux was an NFCA third-team All-American in 2009.

Lux, a team captain, is Notre Dame's career leader in home runs (50), putouts (1,544) and RBI (t-1st with 174). Her single-season marks of 17 home runs and 17 doubles in 2010 tie both of those program bests. With a slugging clip of .801 in 2010, Lux demolished the previous record of .695, which she herself set in 2009.

Lux is the only player in BIG EAST history to record 60+ runs, 80+ hits and 60+ RBI in a career. She cemented her name in the BIG EAST record book for career RBI (1st - 66), home runs (t-1st - 24), runs scored (3rd - 61), walks (t-7th - 33) and doubles (t-8th - 17).

Lux is a member of Notre Dame's Rosenthal Leadership Academy and was a recipient of the Byron V. Kanaley Award, the most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame student-athlete.
