SPENCER NAMED TO FIRST TEAM ACADEMIC ALL-DISTRICT
GEORGETOWN, Texas – Senior men’s soccer player Josh
Spencer has been named as a First Team All-District Academic Team
by the College Sports Information Directors of America
Spencer, a forward from Huntsville, TX, is a shining example of what a Southwestern student-athlete is. He currently leads the Pirates in goals and points this season and is a triple major in Economics, Spanish and German and will graduate in May 2010.
With the First Team selection, Spencer advances to the national level and will be nominated for the Academic All-American team that will be announced later this month.
CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) was founded in 1957. Previously, sports information directors, as a group, were a part of the American College Public Relations Association but most SIDs at those ACPRA meetings felt that a separate organization was needed. There were 102 members at the original meetings; since that time, CoSIDA has grown to over 2,400 members in the United States and Canada. The association is designed to help the SID at all levels. It is the desire of the members to have the profession take its rightful place on the decision-making levels of college athletics. Everything done is geared to this objective.
