Cooksey earns Academic All-District V honors

University of Southern Indiana women’s cross country/track and field sophomore Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District V second team.

To be eligible for the award, the student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with legitimate athletic credentials and at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale). The student-athlete must have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at the institution (true freshmen, red-shirt freshmen and ineligible athletic transfers are not eligible) and must have completed at least one full academic year at the institution.

CoSIDA’s College Division includes NCAA Division II and III as well as both divisions of NAIA, while District V includes institutions from Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ontario, and Manitoba.

Cooksey, who earned Academic All-GLVC honors for cross country and track and field, won the NCAA II national championship in the 3,000 meters last Friday. She earned three All-America awards this season, won three conference titles, and was a four-time All-GLVC performer as a sophomore in cross country, indoor and outdoor track.

The All-Region performer in cross country was named the 2004 Great Lakes Region Outdoor Track Female Athlete of the Year after winning 15 of the 18 individual events she competed in during the indoor and outdoor season.

In just two seasons, Cooksey has earned five All-America honors and eight All-GLVC honors. She was a three-time GLVC “Freshman of the Year” honoree in 2002-03 and currently holds eight school records, including the record for most individual first-place finishes (21).

Cooksey is a business major and a graduate of Brownsburg High School.
