DE PERE - St. Norbert College junior Brad Boockmeier, junior Austin Livingston and senior Taylor Pasterski have been named to the Capital One NCAA Division III Men's Track and Field/Cross Country Academic All-District VI squad, presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Boockmeier, a Green Bay native and a graduate of Green Bay Preble High School, holds a 3.82 grade point average with a major in mathematics. This is Boockmeier's second consecutive Academic All-District VI honor in track and field. At the 2015 Midwest Conference Outdoor Championship, Boockmeier finished first in the 110-meter hurdles, second in the javelin throw, third on the 4x100-meter relay, fifth in the shot put and sixth in the 100-meter dash. At the 2015 MWC Indoor Championship, Boockmeier was fourth in the high jump and 60-meter hurdles.

An accomplished decathlete, Boockmeier is currently competing in the event this weekend at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Championship in Canton, N.Y. He would have qualified for the 2014 NCAA Division III Outdoor Championship in the decathlon but was an injury scratch. Boockmeier finished as an All-American in the decathlon with an eighth-place finish in 2013, the only freshman to finish in the top eight.

Livingston, an Appleton native and a graduate of Kimberly High School, holds a perfect 4.00 grade point average with a major in biology. Livingston was an All-American at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Championship, running on the Green Knights' sixth-place 4x400-meter relay. He finished second at the 2015 MWC Outdoor Championship in the 800-meter run and 4x400-meter relay, and was first in the spring medley relay, second in the 800-meter run and 4x400-meter relay at the MWC Indoor Championship. Livingston also won the MWC title in the outdoor 800-meter run and indoor 4x400-meter relay in 2014.

Pasterski, a Green Bay native and a Green Bay Preble High School graduate, possesses a 3.70 grade point average with a double major in psychology and sociology. He was a two-time All-American at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Championship, finishing sixth in the 4x400-meter relay and eighth in the 400-meter run. Pasterski finished second in the 400-meter run, 4x100-meter relay and 4x400-meter relay, was fourth in the 200-meter dash and fifth in the 60-meter dash at the 2015 MWC Indoor Championship. He finished second in the 4x400-meter relay, third in the 400-meter dash and 4x100-meter relay and was fifth in the 200-meter dash at the 2015 MWC Outdoor Championship. In his career, Pasterski finished with five titles, eight runner-up finishes and 11 third-place finishes at MWC championships.

Livingston and Pasterski are also both competing at the NCAA Outdoor Championship this weekend on the Green Knights' 4x400-meter relay team, with the finals running Saturday afternoon.

The Green Knights won their first MWC men's track and field championship by capturing the 2015 outdoor title on May 9 in Ripon.

St. Norbert is just one of three Division III schools to have three men's track and field performers earn Academic All-District status this spring, joining Bridgewater (Va.) College and Rochester Institute of Technology.

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, scheduled to be announced June 23, is selected after All-District teams are picked from eight geographic regions nationally. All first-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the Academic All-America ballot.
