AUSTIN, Texas – The 2019-20 CoSIDA Academic All-America® NAIA Division Cross Country/Track & Field teams as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) was released this week and Dylan Kucera was named to the First Team.
Kucera, a sophomore from Fremont, Nebraska, was a standout in the classroom as well as the field this year. Majoring in Education, he has earned Dean’s List recognition each of his four semesters on campus while competing for the track & field team.
In his field events this year he was the NAIA Indoor Shot Put Champion earning All-American status in that event as well as the weight throw. He was also an All-GPAC performer in both events during the conference season.
The NAIA Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NAIA national governance structure to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2019-20 NAIA Academic All-America® teams program.
