GWH senior captain Lee Stecklein was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) 2017 Academic All-District At-Large First Team for District 6. The recognition marks the second-straight year Stecklein earned an Academic All-District award.

Stecklein is joined by fellow University of Minnesota honorees Bailey Abernathy (women’s gymnastics), Justin Karstadt (men’s gymnastics), Michael Kroells (wrestling), Brett Pfarr (wrestling), Yaroslav Pochinka (men’s gymnastics), and Yu Zhou (women’s swimming & diving) on the Academic All-District At-Large First Team; all seven are now eligible for Academic All-America accolades in June.  Kroells and Pfarr are also two-time All-District selections.

We congratulate Lee and the other six Gopher student-athletes on these achievements!!
