Asia Seidt Wins 2020 CoSIDA D1 At-Large Academic All-American of the Year

The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) has announced their selections for the 2019-2020 Division I Academic All-America At-Large teams, as well as the Team Member of the Year. Each year CoSIDA selects the Academic All-America teams in multiple sports categories, with each category having a Team Member of the year within it.

While some sports have their own, individual category, swimming falls into the at-large category. Other sports included in this category are field hockey, lacrosse, golf, tennis, and more. This year, the women’s At-Large team was led by a swimmer, recent Kentucky graduate Asia Seidt.

Seidt was a 21-time All-American swimmer for Kentucky, as well as a 2020 Olympic Trials qualifier. Last summer Seidt won the 200 back at the 2019 Phillips 66 National Championships.  She qualified for the NCAA championships all four years at Kentucky.

Last year, at the 2019 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, Seidt was awarded the NCAA Elite 90 award, given to one athlete who qualifies for each NCAA sport’s national championships while maintaining high academics. She was also selected as the 2019 SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She graduated from Kentucky with a perfect 4.0 GPA while majoring in Kinesiology.

Earlier this week Seidt announced that she would be retiring from the sport via an Instagram post.

Both Stanford and Texas had two representatives on the women’s First Team: Erin Voss and Brooke Forde for Stanford and Claire Adams and Alison Gibson for Texas. Adams, on top of making the First Team Academic All-America, was honored as the BIG-12 swimmer of the year for the third straight season. In total 14 swimmers were honored as Academic All-America while holding a 4.0 GPA: Serica Hallstead, Asia Seidt, Allie Surrency, Maddie Baiotto, Talisa Lemke, Makayla Sargent, Anne Hayburn, Eric Knowles, Daniel Kober, Micah Oh, Scott Piper, Coley Sullivan, Nehemiah Mork,  and Josh Sorbe.

For the women a total of 20 swimmers were honored as members of the At-large teams, making swimming the most represented sport by a wide margin. On the men’s side, the Team Member of the Year award went to Merrimack College lacrosse player Charlie Bertrand. Overall 17 male swimmers were selected across the three All-America teams, with 7 being chosen for the first team.
