McCormack Named to Capital One Academic All-District Team

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson distance runner Ty McCormack was named to the Capital One Academic All-District IV Team on Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). With his all-district selection, McCormack is now eligible for Capital One Academic All-America consideration.
