Arizona State senior Jacqueline Cako has been named All-Pac-12 Second Team for the 2013 season, her third consecutive honor as a student-athlete at ASU. This award is the second recent Pac-12 Honor for Cako; she was also selected as Pac-12 Scholar Athlete of the Year.
A third-year senior, Cako was chosen as All-Pac-12 Second Team in 2011 and 2012, as both a freshman and sophomore.
“I’m very excited. It’s huge to be able to make it three years in a row. It’s a great feeling to have this to go along with my Pac-12 Scholar Athlete award. It’s always exciting to be awarded for your performance,” Cako said.
Cako will compete in the upcoming NCAA Individual Championships in both singles and doubles, with her senior partner Nicole Smith. After that, she will train in Tempe over the summer working towards a pro career.
“I know I’m going to miss this place — I had a good college career,” Cako said of her experience at Arizona State. “I’m proud of it and I’m happy to walk away leaving a good mark on the program. It definitely feels great, a little bitter sweet because it’s the end of my time here, but I’ve finished in three years in what most people will never get the chance to do.”
