Xiong Named Academic All-District
June 5, 2008
The College Sports Information Directors of America have named UA junior track sprinter Xuehan Xiong to its first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VIII men's track & field/cross country team.
Xiong, from Wuhan, China, carries a perfect 4.0 grade point average in computer sciences to underscore the citation, which now makes him eligible in voting for ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors from CoSIDA.
Xiong was part of UA's winning 4x100m relay team at the NCAA West Region Championships last week and will compete in the event at the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, next week.
