Denison senior track and field standout Aedin Brennan was named to the Academic All-District first-team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). As a first-team All-District selection, Brennan becomes a candidate for Academic All-America selection.
Brennan is an eight-time national qualifier and the 2015 national champion in the heptathlon at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championship. She is a seven-time All-American and a 26-time North Coast Athletic Conference champion. She won NCAC Field Athlete of the Year accolades six times and was a 15-time NCAC Athlete of the Week.
At the NCAA Division III Championships, Brennan won her first national championship last May in the heptathlon. She has also finished second in the pentathlon at this year's NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship. That came after a 10th place showing in 2013, a seventh place finish in 2014 and a fourth place performance in 2015. Unfortunately, due to an injury suffered in preparation for this year's NCAA Outdoor Championship, Brennan was forced to withdraw from the heptathlon and the triple jump.
The Division III Academic All-America teams will be announced by CoSIDA on Wednesday, June 22.
