22 SSC Student-Athletes Land on At-Large Academic All-District Team
The 2012 Capital One Academic All-District ® Women's and Men’s At-Large Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Student-athletes from SSC institutions claimed all but one of 22 spots on the All-District teams.
On the women's team, SSC student-athletes garnered all 12 spots on the list. The 10 slots on the men's team was comprised of nine student-athletes from SSC member schools.
The Academic All-District ® teams include the student-athletes listed below and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the first year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moves from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non Division I) and doubles the number of scholar-athletes honored. The teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
The Capital One Division II and III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2011-12 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.
The Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
