2014-15 Capital One Academic All-Distict At-Large Teams
The 2015 Capital Once Academic All-District At-Large Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), was announced on May 14th with the North Coast placing eight student-athletes on the list.
On the men's side, four Kenyon student-athletes were first-team selections in District 7, led by senior Wade Heerboth (Tucson, AZ/Foothill), a men's tennis player with a 3.83 grade-point-average as an economics major. Heerboth was joined on the squad by junior teammate Robert Turlington (Rochester, MN/Lourdes), a biochemistry major with a 3.96 GPA, along with sophomore swimmers Arthur Conover (Oakland, ME/Messalonskee) and Trevor Manz (Eau Claire, WI/Memorial). Conovoer is a physics major with a 3.76 GPA, while Manz holds a 3.99 GPA as a biochemistry major.
The women's District 7 team also included four NCAC swimming & diving student-athletes, led by the senior duo of Kenyon's Hannah Cooper (Houston, TX/Memorial) and Wooster's Morgan Hughes (Chico, CA/Chico). Cooper graduated from KC this spring with a 3.85 GPA as a psychology major, while Cooper completed her academic career at Wooster with a 3.94 GPA as a anthropology/studio art major. In addition, Kenyon junior Haley Townsend (Greenwood, IN/Center Grove), an international studies major with a 3.94 GPA, and Denison sophomore Campbell Costley (Glencoe, IL/New Trier), a english literature major with a 3.95 GPA, were also named to the District 7 team.
First-team 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.
This is the fourth 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.
