LEWISBURG, Pa. – After each landing a spot on the Academic All-Patriot League Team, junior Kyle Adams and senior Luke Giugliano have earned College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District 2 honors, announced by the organization on Thursday. Adams and Giugliano now advance to the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.
In order to be eligible for Academic All-District and All-America recognition, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore, maintain a minimum 3.30 cumulative GPA and be a starter or key reserve on his/her team.
Adams, an economics major, earns CoSIDA Academic All-District accolades for the first time in his career. The junior is a two-time Academic All-Patriot League selection and has made the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in each of his three seasons at Bucknell. Adams has a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade-point average.
On the track, Adams earned All-Patriot League honors at the Patriot League Outdoor Championships, helping a 4x800-meter relay team to a second-place finish. He is also a two-time All-East performer in the event.
Giugliano lands a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team for the second consecutive season, becoming the sixth Bison in school history and the first since Kevin MacLeod (2008-09) to earn the accolade in back-to-back years, and aims to capture his second CoSIDA Academic All-America citation. A mechanical engineering major, the senior is a four-time Academic All-Patriot League honoree and has made the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in each of his four years with the Bison. Giugliano is a recipient of the Alvin F. Jackson Scholar-Athlete Award, presented to a senior athlete who through his/her actions has demonstrated outstanding academic and athletic achievement and future promise as Bucknell alumni.
Giugliano earned his first-ever All-Patriot League citation at the outdoor championships, earning the silver medal in the 10,000m. The senior is also a 2017 NCAA East Regional qualifier in the race.
Division I Academic All-America winners will be announced on Friday, June 23rd.
