    BOULDER—Junior ski team member Andreas Haug was Friday named to the Capital One Academic All-District Men’s At-Large team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Haug is now automatically nominated for Academic All-America honors.

    Haug was one of 12 student-athletes honored in District 7, which encompasses Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming. The At-Large team is a catch-all team for several sports not individually recognized by CoSIDA, including Bowling, Crew, Fencing Field Hockey, Golf, Gymnastics, Hockey, Lacrosse, Rifle, Skiing, Swimming, Tennis, Volleyball, Water Polo and Wrestling.

    Haug, a Business major, has a cumulative grade point average of 3.98 (all A’s and one A-minus). This is a repeat honor for Haug, who was named to the All-District team and eventually named third-team Academic All-American a year ago.

    At the 2012 NCAA Championships, he was given the Elite 89 Award for skiing, given to the student-athlete competing at the NCAA Championships with the highest cumulative GPA. That season he was also named CU’s Scholar-Athlete Award winner, given to the top GPA amongst all sophomore student-athletes at CU.

    He helped the Buffs to the 2013 NCAA Championship by finishing 13 of 14 races on the season. He compiled 12 top 20 finishes and four top 10 performances. He had his best outing at the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association (RMISA) Championships when he finished fifth in the giant slalom and seventh in the slalom, helping the Buffs claim the RMISA Championship, as well.

    He is a three-time National Academic Award Winner as presented by the United States Collegiate Ski Coaches Association (USCSCA) for maintaining above a 3.5 grade point average and he is also a three-time member of CU’s 4.0 Club.
