IU track and field's redshirt junior Ben Veatch was announced to the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-American third team last week.
Veatch, who is a distance runner and rising senior, earned a 3.93 GPA while majoring in exercise science. During his redshirt sophomore season, Veatch was named as an indoor track and field All-American in the 5,000-meter event.
