DE PERE - St. Norbert College senior defender Thomas Gritton has been named to the second team of the Capital One Division III Men's Soccer Academic All-America team, presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Gritton, a Neenah native, owns a 3.92 grade point average while majoring in economics and mathematics. Gritton played in 13 matches this season for the Green Knights, and had one goal and one assist for three points. A second-team All-Midwest Conference selection this season, he was a two-year captain and played in 66 career matches. Gritton is also the men's soccer team's representative to the St. Norbert Student-Athlete Advisory Council. A suite leader in his residence hall, Gritton is also a teacher's assistant in the Economics Department and is also part of the St. Norbert Center for Business and Economic Advancement.

Gritton's honor brings St. Norbert's total of Academic All-Americans to 60. It is the sixth Academic All-America award overall for the St. Norbert men's soccer program, joining John Cremer (2008, first team), Amir St. Clair (2007, second team), Adam Winters (2003, first team) and Andrew Winters (2006 and 2007, first team).

To be eligible for national or regional selection, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 on a scale of 4.0, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his current institution and be nominated by his sports information director. The Academic All-America team is selected after All-District teams are picked from eight geographic regions nationally.
