BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced its Google Cloud Academic All-District Men's and Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Teams on Wednesday and six student-athletes from the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) were honored with the distinction.

Student-athletes from Carleton, Macalester, Saint Benedict, St. Catherine, St. Olaf, and St. Thomas received Academic All-District accolades. Among those honored were Tris Dodge from Carleton, Phoebe Aguiar from Macalester, Morgan Pierce from Saint Benedict, Marie Morrier from St. Catherine, Sean Lonergan from St. Olaf, and Parker Rosenau from St. Thomas. Dodge and Rosenau received the distinction for the second year in a row.

The Google Cloud Academic All-District team is part of the Google Cloud Academic All-America program, as selected by CoSIDA. Top student-athletes from NCAA Division III programs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan are eligible for inclusion on the District 6 team, one of eight Division III districts nationwide. Student-athletes must have a grade-point average above 3.30 (4.0 scale) and have outstanding athletic credentials. College sports information directors in the district vote for the teams.

This is the eighth year of the expanded Google Cloud Academic All-America program, with separate teams comprising NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, along with a College Division team of NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools. First-team Google Cloud Academic All-District members advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America ballot, voted on by a committee of CoSIDA members. 

The Division III Google Cloud Academic All-America program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division III national governance structure, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the Google Cloud Division III Academic All-America teams program.
