St. Scholastica junior thrower Tom Lyscio was named to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division III All-Academic Track & Field team Friday.


Lyscio is just the second CSS male track & field athlete to earn the honor.

A total of 200 student-athletes, representing 72 institutions made up the men’s team. Lyscio was the only Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) athlete to make the team.

Lyscio was an All-UMAC selection in both the indoor and outdoor seasons. He was named the Co-Field Athlete of the Meet for the conference indoor championships. He was also an Academic All-UMAC selection and met a NCAA Division III provisional in the hammer throw at the start of the outdoor season.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 and have met either the NCAA Division III indoor or outdoor automatic or provisional qualifying standard.
