MU Softball player Kimberly Wert earned one of the highest distinctions in college sports last week when she was named a 2022 Academic All-American®, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

This honor isn’t the first recognition of Kimberly’s excellence on and off the field. Twice, SEC leaders named her Player of the Week. Softball America recognized her as a Third Team All-American. And she holds the all-time Mizzou home run record. She graduated in May with dual degrees in psychology and health sciences and a 3.64 GPA.

Congratulations to Kimberly on this accomplishment.
