PROVIDENCE, RI - Eighteen Brown student-athletes helped the Bears earn a record number of CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-Disctrict and Academic All-America selections this past year. The 18 All-District selections exceed Brown's previous record of 13, which was met during the 2005-2006 academic year. In addition, seven of the 18 All-District honorees were recognized with CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors, also a new Brown record.

The Bears' totals are also tops in the Ivy League, which set a new League-wide record with 82 All-District selections. Harvard followed Brown with 17 All-District selections, while Cornell (15) and Yale (14) also had at least 10 student-athletes honored. Penn (7), Dartmouth (4), Princeton (4), and Columbia (3) round out the League's All-District selections.

Brown's seven Academic All-Americans was also the top mark in the Ivy League, and was followed by Harvard and Penn, each with two, and Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton, and Yale, all with one.

Of the 18 Brown student athletes to earn All-District honors, 13 were First Team selections and five were Second Team honorees. Five of the 13 First Team selections went on to earn Second Team Academic All-America honors, while two of the 13 earned Third Team Academic All-America honors.
