SAN ANTONIO — Sophomore Nate Brunette earned first-team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District VI honors, the College Sports Information Directors of America announced on Thursday.

Brunette, who maintains a 3.94 GPA in civil engineering, is coming off a second season that saw him advance to the NCAA Outdoor Championships quarterfinals in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes last weekend in Eugene. Ore. The Humble native accounted for 12.75 points at last month's Southland Conference Outdoor Championships after finishing third in the 100m and 200m in addition to running lead leg of the Roadrunners' sixth-place 400m relay quartet. In February, the 6-foot-4, 185 pounder raced to sixth place in the deuce at the Southland Indoor, which helped lead UTSA to its conference-record-tying sixth consecutive championship. Brunette is a two-time member of the school’s President's List (4.00 GPA) and he has earned Dean's List (3.75 GPA) honors his other two semesters.

The 2010-11 Capital One Academic All-District Men’s Track & Field/Cross Country Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performance on the floor and in the classroom. The squads are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The University Division team includes NCAA Division I participants and first-team 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.
