CLAREMONT, CA. – Pomona-Pitzer had five athletes named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District At-Large teams as announced by CoSIDA.
The Academic All-District™ teams include the student-athletes listed on the following pages and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the sixth year of the expanded Academic All-America® 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 Academic All-America® Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools. The 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 2016-17 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.
The Pomona-Pitzer Swimming and Diving teams had three athletes selected to the All-District team in junior Samuel To, junior Mark Hallman and sophomore Sarah Jin. The women's tennis team had two athletes earn All-District honors in sophomore Caroline Casper and junior Maryann Zhao.
First-team Academic All-District™ honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third team All-America® honorees will be selected later this month.
