Eight Valparaiso University student-athletes were recognized on Tuesday as College Sports Communicators (CSC, formerly known as CoSIDA) announced its academic all-district at-large teams.
Men’s golf senior Caleb VanArragon (Blaine, Minn. / Blaine), sophomore Anthony Delisanti (Sanborn, N.Y. / Niagara Wheatfield) and junior Mason Bonn (Sherwood, Ore. / Sherwood) all received academic all-district recognition, as did women’s golf senior Kelsey Eichenauer, sophomore Anna Fay (Ada, Mich. / Forest Hills) and sophomore Madison Keil (LaGrange, Ind. / Lakeland). The women’s golf trio was joined on the women’s academic all-district squad by bowling senior Noelle Doody (Tinley Park, Ill. / Andrew) and junior Isabella Palamaro (Thiells, N.Y. / Rockland).
VanArragon, also the MVC Elite 17 Award Winner for the third straight year, owns a 4.00 cumulative grade point average with a double major in biology and statistics. Delisanti possesses a 3.85 GPA in sports management, while Bonn boasts a 3.66 in mechanical engineering.
Eichenauer has a 3.83 GPA in elementary education, while Fay has a perfect 4.00 in bioengineering and Keil a 3.59 in kinesiology/exercise science. Doody boasts a 3.97 GPA in biology, while Palamaro is the owner of a 3.76 GPA in civil engineering.
All eight meet CSC academic all-district standards by virtue of having a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better. To qualify for the honor, individuals also must be key contributors to their teams, have reached at least sophomore academic status and must have been at their institution for at least one calendar year. The at-large category covers all sports that do not have sport-specific academic all-district teams. The eight Beacons will advance to the CSC Academic All-America ballot.
