2013 CoSIDA ACADEMIC ALL-DISTRICT 6 COLLEGE DIVISION LIST:  MEN - WOMEN

MADISON, S.D. - Four Dakota State University cross country and track & field student-athletes were named to CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) Academic All-District 6 College Division, announced Thursday.

The 2013 Capital One Academic All-District ® Men's and Women's Track/Cross Country teams have been released to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-American teams programs since 2011.

The Academic All-District ® teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the second year of the expanded Academic All-American ® program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded 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.

Three males and one female from DSU's cross country and track & field teams were selected by the CoSIDA. To be nominated to the CoSIDA Academic All-District ballot, the student-athlete needs to have at least 3.3 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale and must be at least sophomore in eligibility. A group of sports information directors from all over the United States vote for the nominees on the ballot.

Seniors Andy Coy and Stephanie Warnke earned this prestigious honor for the second straight year.  Ryan Gimbel (junior) and Zach Ely (sophomore) also received the honor.

First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-American ® ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-American honorees will be released in June.

Below is the list of DSU student-athletes that were named to the list (year - hometown - major - parents' name):

  • Andy Coy (senior - Hill City, S.D. - Biology - Rusty and Cindy Coy) two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District 6 College Division selection
