CoSIDA Selects DII Academic All-America Teams

The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) has announced it’s selections for the 2019-2020 DII All-America At-Large Teams.

Unlike some sports that have their own category, swimming falls into the at-large category. A few of the other sports joining swimming in this category include golf, tennis, and lacrosse. Each year three “teams” of All-America are announced for each sport, including the at-large category, as well as each category having a Team Member of the Year.

This year, on the women’s side, the Team Member of the Year award was given to Amanda Kautzer, who competes in skiing for Michigan Tech. For the men, Zach Bodeau of Rockhurst University’s lacrosse team was given the top honor.

While neither of the top honors went to swimmers, they were still heavily featured across the three teams. For the women, 14 swimmers and 1 water polo player made the teams. Three women, Becca Cubbler (Bloomsburg University), Mary Northcutt (Carson-Newman University), and Mia Wood (Colorado School of Mines), earned first-team honors. The women had the most representatives of any sport on the list.

On the men’s side, 11 swimmers and 1 water polo player earned places on the three teams. The first team had 6 aquatic representatives: Paden Duke (Carson-Newman University), Markus Furst (Wingate University), Milos Popovic (Salem University), Tim Samuelsen (Missouri S&T), Payton Staman (Indianapolis), and Giacomo Viazzo (Wingate University). The men also had the most representatives of any sport.
