BOULDER—Senior ski team member Andreas Haug was Thursday named to the Capital One Academic All-District 7 Men’s At-Large team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).  Haug is now automatically nominated for Academic All-America honors. 

Haug was one of 12 student-athletes honored in District 7, which encompasses Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.  Even more impressive is the fact that the at-large team is a catch-all team for golf, gymnastics, hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo and wrestling.  Nationally, the United States Collegiate Ski Coaches Association alone honored over 250 skiers who have above a cumulative 3.5 grade point average. 

Haug, who just last week graduated with degrees in, has a cumulative grade point average of 3.98 and has just two A- grades in his entire career.  Haug has now been honored on the All-District 7 team three times and has also earned mention on the Academic All-America team twice, the third team as a sophomore and second team last year. 

He became the first CU student-athlete to win both of CU’s career awards for his accomplishments both in the classroom and as an athlete.  He was named the Senior Male Scholar Athlete for having the highest GPA amongst all senior male student-athletes, and was also given the CU Sports Performer of the Year (CUSPY) award for Career Male Athletic Achievement. 

Off the mountain, he won the Tom Hansen Pac-12 Conference Medal, was a four-time member of CU’s 4.0 Club, a six-time member of the Dean’s List, the CU Scholar-Athlete Award winner twice, the NCAA Elite 89 Award winner in 2012, a four-time member of the USCSCA National Collegiate All-Academic Team, and seven-time member of either the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll or the CU AD’s Honor Roll. 

On the mountain, he became just the third men’s alpine skier to participate at four straight NCAA Championships in the past 20 years for the Buffaloes, helping the Buffs to two NCAA Championships (2011, ’13) in that timeframe.  He was the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association Men’s Alpine MVP in 2011 and the RMISA Men’s Giant Slalom Individual Champion in 2014.  He was twice named All-RMISA and twice the RMISA Skier of the Week.

Haug secured a job with Goldman Sachs in New York City prior to graduation in a process that included over 300 candidates nationwide.
