GOSHEN COLLEGE ATHLETICS: GC athletes Helmuth, Brickson receive honors

GOSHEN — The athletic honors continue to roll in for the Goshen College Athletics Department as two student-athletes were selected to the 2013 Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-American teams for the College Division.

Track and Field/ Cross Country senior Erin Helmuth (Elkhart, Ind.) and sophomore Mitchell Brickson (Enon, Ohio) were picked as 2013 First Team Academic All-Americans.

The College Division of the CoSIDA Academic All-American program is comprised of NAIA and two-year institutions from across the United States and Canada.  To be eligible for the Capital One Academic All-American teams, a student-athlete must be nominated by his sports information director as a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale).

Prior to the 2011-12 season, the only Goshen College student-athlete to ever be picked as First Team Academic All-Americans was Mark Schloneger in baseball in 1997.  The Maple Leafs have now racked up nine national honors all-time.

Since the program’s inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 15,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.

For more information about the Academic All-America Teams program, please visit CoSIDA’s website.

Erin Helmuth (Secondary Education/ Math)

A 2012 1st Team CoSIDA Academic All-American, Helmuth was also a four-time NAIA Scholar-Athlete.  She qualified for five-straight NAIA national qualifier in the race walk, three times earning NAIA All-American honors in the indoor 3k event.  Helmuth has also been a key member of the Maple Leafs cross country team.

She is a graduate of Bethany Christian High School.

Mitchell Brickson (Physics)

In just two years as a Maple Leaf, Brickson has qualified for four NAIA national championships and earned four-straight All American honors.  Brickson also runs for the Goshen cross country team, which received votes in the NAIA national poll for the first time in program history in the fall.
