Garrett Strawn Named to Academic All-District Team

Nov. 10, 2017

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University men’s soccer junior midfielder Garrett Strawn has been named a 2017 Academic All-District selection for District 8, announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Strawn (Sammamish, WA/Skyline) carries a 3.84 GPA as a biochemistry major. He is now eligible to be voted to the Academic All-America Team, which will be announced in early December. The Academic All-District 8 Team is composed of student-athletes from the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, the Pacific West Conference and the California Collegiate Athletic Association.

Nominations and voting are conducted by members of CoSIDA. To be considered, student-athletes must be of sophomore standing or higher and be starters or significant reserves for their teams with minimum cumulative grade point averages of 3.30 or better.

The honor for Strawn marks the fourth CoSIDA Academic All-District selection for the WWU men’s soccer program, and first since Andrew Weishaar in 2013. Strawn was voted as one of four midfielders on the Academic All-District 8 Team and was joined by Seattle Pacific forward Gabe Kellum, midfielder Jess Cayetano and defender Ryan Higgins as GNAC representatives.

Strawn played in 13 games during the 2017 season with 11 starts, totaling 1 goal and 3 assists. He tied for the team lead in assists and totaled 4 points (1 goal, 2 assists) in a 4-2 victory at Concordia on Sept. 30. His first assist of the season came on the golden goal during a 3-2 overtime win at Seattle Pacific on Sept. 23 as part of a 5-0-1 start to the GNAC schedule for the Vikings.

Strawn is a two-time GNAC All-Academic Team honoree, and was one of a program record 11 Vikings named to the 2017 GNAC All-Academic Team. He was also the WWU Male Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year last year.

The Vikings concluded the 2017 campaign 6-6-5 overall with a 5-4-3 mark in GNAC play.
