U.S. Air Force Academy, Colo.: - The 2012-13 Capital One Academic All-District ® Men's At-Large Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Air Force Academy senior Matt Kluckman, Division I first team, from the rifle team was recognized for his academic and athletic performances as an electrical engineer major and a member of the Academy's rifle team. Kluckman, San Antonio, Texas (Roosevelt), is majoring in electrical engineering and has a 3.97 GPA and is planning on attending medical school after his graduation from the Academy.
During the 2012-13 rifle season, he shot a personal best (PB) 584 in air rifle against OSU, West Virginia and the University of Akron. He also shot a PB 576 in smallbore against UTEP and Reno and shot a 583 in air rifle during the President's Trophy Match in November 2012. Kluckman scored an aggregate 1153 with a 578 and 575 during the two-day men's 2012 Winter Air Gun Championships in December. Kluckman closed out his Academy athletic career at the 2013 NCAA Rifle National Championships, where he finished 32nd with 573 points in the individual smallbore and 44th in the air rifle with the same score.
First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
