NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale cross country and track standout Patrick Dantzer has been named a first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District selection for District I. Dantzer is now eligible for national CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, to be announced later this month.
A senior biology major, Dantzer holds the school record in the 5,000-meter run (14:10.59). He was also part of Yale's All-Ivy distance medley relay team indoors, and ran a 4:04 mile leg to help the relay team finish second at indoor IC4As. Dantzer, who qualified for outdoor IC4As in the 1,500-meter run, was the cross country team captain and finished 20th at the NCAA Northeast Regional Cross Country Championship last year.
