SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KWSN) – Sioux Falls' redshirt sophomore Billy Brockmueller has been named to the District 7 Academic All-District team for the 2012-13 men’s track and field/cross country seasons, announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Brockmueller was joined by five other Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference student-athletes that helped make up the 18 member team. An applied math and computer science double-major, Brockmueller has excelled both on the track and in the classroom, where he has maintained a 4.00 GPA.
During the fall, Brockmueller earned an individual invitation to the NCAA Cross Country Championships where he was awarded the 2012 Elite 89 Award, which is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA championships. A first team All-NSIC runner, he was also named to the USTFCCCA All-Academic and All-Central Region teams for cross country.
Brockmueller also had an exceptional showing in both indoor and outdoor track, where he achieved all-conference honors in the 3,000m, 5,000m (indoor and outdoor) and 10,000m races. A product of Brandon, S.D., Brockmueller set four USF records in 2012-13, including the DMR, mile, 5,000m and 10,000m runs. He was also a provisional qualifier for the indoor track and field championships. Members of the All-District teams are now placed on the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.
