Sophomore’s second academic accolade in as many weeks

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (May 31, 2013) – Sophomore Adam Chase (Kingsport, Tenn.) of the ETSU men’s track & field/cross country teams was named to the 2012-13 Capital One Men’s Academic All-District III First Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

The NCAA Division I District III First Team includes 10 additional men’s track & field/cross country student-athletes from the states of North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee.

Chase, a Mathematics major, earned the honor by carrying a 4.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) in addition to his numerous athletics accomplishments in track & field/cross country this season. In the recent outdoor track & field campaign, the sophomore took gold at the 2013 A-Sun Outdoor Championships with a personal best time of 9:09.85 in the 3000m steeplechase, a time that propelled him to First Team All-Conference honors in the event and currently ranks among the top-70 in the NCAA East Region. Moreover, Chase’s accomplishments this spring in the 10,000m and the 5,000m also rank among the top-10 in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

The Kingsport native also registered personal bests this indoor season with a 4:20.42 time in the mile run and a mark of 8:41.31 in the 3000m run.

Academic accomplishments for the sophomore have been filing in the last few weeks after being named the 2013 A-Sun Men’s Track & Field Student Athlete of the Year on May 20. With his present Academic All-District award, Chase remains in the hunt to be named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-American Team which will be selected in the coming weeks.
