By
From page B3 | July 24, 2014 |

Derek Nelson was one of nine members of the North Central College, Ill., men’s track and field team honored by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association as All-Academic Individuals for the 2014 season, in recognition for the combining of academic and athletic excellence.

Nelson, a sport management major, won a College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin championship and placed eighth in the nation to earn All-America honors as part of the Cardinals’ distance medley relay team indoors.

He added a second All-America certificate outdoors as North Central placed fifth in the 4-by-400-meter relay with the third-fastest time (3:11.60) in school history.

To qualify for the All-Academic award, student-athletes must have compiled a grade-point average of 3.30 and have competed at either the NCAA Indoor or Outdoor Championships or finish the season ranked in the national top 35 in an individual event or the top 25 in a relay event.

A total of 276 student-athletes from 100 institutions made the list.

Escape from the Rock

Davis residents Heidi Perry and Amy Rieger won the women’s relay division of the Escape from the Rock duathlon on Sunday.

Rieger swam from Alcatraz to Aquatic Park in San Francisco in 37 minutes, 7 seconds, and Perry covered 7 miles from the park to the Golden Gate Bridge and back in 59.36. The duo posted a time of 1:36.43 to claim the title.

DAM anniversary party
Davis Aquatic Masters is celebrating its 40th year as an organized adult swim team and invites all current and former members and coaches to attend the party.
On Saturday, Aug. 9, DAM will host a luau from 6 to 11 p.m. featuring a catered dinner, beverages, entertainment, dancing and a brief program emceed by head coach Stu Kahn.
“This celebration is a testament to swimmers, coaches and supporters who have allowed the club to prosper and endure and reach our current membership of 500-plus,” Kahn explained.
Included in the evening will be the DAM version of “Duel in the Pool,” a handicapped race between Ernie Hoftyzer and Rick Moss.
