DE PERE - St. Norbert College seniors Austin Livingston and Brad Boockmeier were named today to the NCAA Division III Men's Track and Field/Cross Country Academic All-District VI Team, presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Livingston was also bestowed with the NCAA Elite 90 Award Wednesday at the banquet prior to the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Wartburg College. The award is given to the student-athlete with the top grade point average participating in each of the 90 championships the NCAA sponsors. Livingston's honor is the first for St. Norbert College.

Livingston was named a first-team Academic All-American in 2015, while Boockmeier was a second-team Academic All-America choice a year ago. Both advance to the ballot for the CoSIDA Academic All-America team, which will be announced June 22.

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 is competing at this weekend's NCAA Outdoor Championship as a member of the Green Knights' 4x400-meter relay team. The relay also finished in fifth place earlier this season at the Drake Relays with a school record time of 3:12.26. Livingston was an All-American at the 2015 NCAA Division III Outdoor Championship, running on the Green Knights' 4x400-meter relay, which placed fourth nationally. Livingston was also an All-American at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Championship, running on the Green Knights' sixth-place 4x400-meter relay. Livingston is active in student government, is a Habitat for Humanity volunteer and has worked as a teaching assistant.

Boockmeier, a Green Bay native and a graduate of Green Bay Preble High School, holds a 3.86 grade point average with a major in mathematics. Boockmeier, who is competing in the decathlon at this weekend's NCAA Outdoor Championship, placed seventh in the pentathlon at the NCAA Indoor Championship in March. Boockmeier earned All-American status at the 2015 NCAA Division III Outdoor Championship, finishing fifth in the decathlon with a school-record 6,709 points. Boockmeier, who also plays football for the Green Knights, is a teaching assistant and is a math tutor for area high school students.

To be eligible for national or district 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 their sports information director. The Academic All-America team is selected after eight All-District teams of 10 student-athletes each are picked from eight geographic regions nationally.
