NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale cross country and track standout Lindsay Donaldson has been named a first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District selection for District I. Donaldson is now eligible for national CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, to be announced later this month.
A sophomore history major, Donaldson will be competing in the 5,000-meter run at nationals next weekend.
