Shackleton & Bencomo Named To ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA All-Academic Teams

June 5, 2008

Junior Kyle Shackleton and senior Chris Bencomo have been named to ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA All-Academic district teams with Shackleton earning first-team accolades. Bencomo was named to the All-District second-team.

With Shackleton's first team honors, the distance runner now advances to the national ballot where he is eligible for Academic All-America accolades. Shackleton ended the track season with a third-place finish in the 10,000m at the Pac-10 Championships, running a lifetime-best 30:19.12.

Bencomo tied for ninth at the West Region meet and was also ninth at the Pac-10 Championships in the pole vault. He had an outdoor-best mark of 17-00.75.

Earlier in the week, Kyle was named Pac-10 All-Academic first-team, while Bencomo earned second-team honors.
