Brent DiVittorio Earns Academic All-America Recognition

06/30/2020 

SUNY Cortland graduate student Brent DiVittorio of Brewster, N.Y., has been selected as a Division III Men's Track and Field/Cross Country Academic All-American for the 2019-20 season by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
 
A national third-team honoree, DiVittorio completed his graduate work in adolescence education biology this spring with a 3.72 cumulative grade point average. He earned a bachelor's degree in biology in 2018 with a 3.34 overall grade point average.
 
During the indoor track and field season this past winter, DiVittorio earned All-America and All-Atlantic Region honors and was the SUNYAC champion in the 60-meter hurdles. He ranked fifth nationally in Division III with a time of 8.06 seconds — just a hundredth of a second off the school record. The NCAA indoor championships, along with the entire outdoor season, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
DiVittorio was previously a three-time national qualifier and all-region performer in the indoor heptathlon (2016-18). He earned All-America honors in the event with a seventh-place finish in 2017 and was also SUNYAC champion and an all-region performer that year. In addition, DiVittorio was the outdoors SUNYAC decathlon champion and an all-region honoree in 2017 and was part of Cortland's winning 4x100-meter relay at the 2019 SUNYAC outdoor championship.
 
With DiVittorio's award, Cortland student-athletes have now earned 37 Academic All-America honors, including 17 since 2011. He is the second Red Dragon to be recognized this season — gymnast Emma Schulz was named to the At-Large Academic All-America team last week — and the second Cortland men's track and field athlete to earn Academic All-America recognition following Connor Christopherson in 2016-17.
