SEWANEE, Tenn. - Announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America on Monday, Sewanee's Owen Legrone has been named as a member of the Google Cloud Academic All-District® Team, selected by CoSIDA, for Men's Track and Field/Cross Country.
The Nashville native is a four-time Southern Athletic Association All-Academic Team representative in cross country, as he earned Second Team honors this past season with an Honorable Mention accolade coming in 2016.
Named a two-time cross country All-Academic Individualist by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, Legrone shattered the school record in the 8K with a 25:31.9 time at the 2017 NCAA S/SE Region Championships, good for an All-Region nod.
The senior finished as the team's top runner in all six cross country meets in 2017, averaging a finish of 13th among all participants.
Running distance for the track and field program, Legrone ran personal bests in the indoor mile (4:43.54) in February and the outdoor 5,000 meters (15:54.77) in March, as he has been named to the SAA All-Academic Team three times.
Outside of the classroom, he is president of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, and is a member of the following honor organizations: Order of the Gown, Order of Omega, Omicron Delta Kappa and Delta Phi Alpha.
The 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District® Men's and Women's Track & Field/Cross Country teams, selected by CoSIDA, recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom.
First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® ballot, with first- and second-team Academic All-America® honorees to be announced on Tuesday, June 19.
