Cumberland wrestler Kyle Delaune was one of 10 individuals named to the 2017 CoSIDA Men’s At-Large Academic All-District 2 College Division team on Thursday, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Student-athletes must be a starter or important reserve and maintain a 3.30 grade-point average to be nominated for academic all-district honors. These 10 individuals are now entered into the pool of candidates for academic All-America.

Delaune garnered his second career All-America accolade, placing sixth at 184. His first came in 2015. The New Orleans native dropped his first bout of the tournament but won three times in the backdraw. He posted a 22-13 mark during the 2016-17 academic year.

Delaune graduated last Saturday with a 3.34 GPA in business administration.
