PROVO, Utah – Junior swimmer Ryan Sorensen was named to the CoSIDA Academic-All-District 8 At-Large Team on Thursday.

Sorensen is a biophysics major with a 3.94 GPA and joined men's volleyball senior Miki Jauhiainen on the at-large team which consists of student-athletes from a number of winter and spring Olympic sports.

An Academic All-MPSF honoree, Sorensen holds the No. 2 time in program history in the 100 breaststroke. The junior competed in eight meets on the year, including the MPSF Championships, finishing a season-best second in the 100 breaststroke against UNLV.

"Ryan is one of those guys who is loved by so many," BYU head coach John Brooks said. "He's also a great student and a great athlete."

District 8 is made up eight states in the Western region of the United States – Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawai'i, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. To be eligible, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average at his current institution. Nominated athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games.
