VERMILLION, S.D. – South Dakota swimming and diving team member Josh Sorbe has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Men's At-Large team for District Six as announced Thursday.
Sorbe, a senior, earns a repeat honor to the team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). He will now appear on the national ballot for Academic All-America.
Sorbe, who carries a 4.0 GPA in economics and political science, was a four-year contributor to the Coyote swimming and diving teams. Sorbe, a 2019 Truman Scholar and past student-body president, provided team points in three events each at the Summit League Championships all four seasons he competed.
Sorbe (Brookings, South Dakota) contributed 11 points as a senior at the Summit League Championships finishing 10th in the 1650 free, 14th in the 400 IM and 16th in the 500 free. He helped the Coyotes post a team runner-up finish for the third-straight season and the team's 706.5 points were a school record for a Summit League Championships.
Eligible student-athletes must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average, have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's contests, completed one full academic year at the institution, reached sophomore athletic eligibility and be nominated by their institutions' sports information director.
