LEWISTON - Lewis-Clark State's Cole Olsen added another accolade to his list of accomplishments on Friday when he was voted to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team. Olsen was an All-American in both cross country and track this past year while maintaining a 3.95 cumulative grade point average.
This is the second year in a row that Olsen has earned the honor.
“Cole has been nothing but an exemplary example of our program,” Head Coach Mike Collins said. “He excels athletically and academically in all aspects of our program. He has definitely earned all of the honors he has received, including this one. I couldn’t be prouder.”
CoSIDA academic awards take into account performance both on the field of play and in the classroom. To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average.
Honorees selected First-Team Academic All-District will advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. Academic All-America honorees will be announced from June 16-19.
