TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
Alabama swimmer Kyle Weeks was named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District At-Large First Teams, selected by the College of Sports Information Directors of America this week.
"We're proud that Kyle has once again earned Academic All-District IV honors," assistant athletics director for student services Jon Dever said. "He has been a great leader for our student-athlete advisory committee as well a dedicated student and athlete."
Weeks earned First Team honors and is now on the Academic All-America ballot. Student-athletes are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. In an expanded Academic All-American program, CoSIDA doubled the number of student-athletes honored this year, which includes NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants on the teams.
Weeks also earned a spot on the Capital One Academic All-American At-Large Team in 2011. The Poway, Calif., native was president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for two years and was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll during all four of his seasons with the Crimson Tide. Graduating with a 4.0 GPA, Weeks earned his bachelor's degree in finance this May.
Weeks joins golfer Brooke Pancake and tennis player Courtney McLane who earned a place on the 2012 women's at-large district team.
