Weissbourd Tabbed to ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Senior co-captain Brady Weissbourd of the Harvard men's volleyball team has been named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District at-large second team, as announced Thursday morning. It marks the second year in a row Weissbourd was honored on the second team.

The Chicago native was one of 11 players to earn a spot on the District I second team in the university division, which covers all universities in the Northeast region. It is the third academic honor for Weissbourd in 2009 after he was named to the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) All-Academic and the Academic All-Ivy League teams.

A human evolutionary biology concentrator, Weissbourd carries a 3.73 GPA in the classroom while leading the Crimson on the court. During the 2009 season, he finished third in the EIVA and fifth in the nation with 0.51 service aces per set, and third in the league and seventh in the nation with 5.21 kills per set.

In addition, Weissbourd ranked fourth in the EIVA and 12th in the nation with 1.36 blocks per set and 24th in the country with a .345 attack percentage.

Harvard tied for first place in the EIVA Hay Division with a 6-2 record in the division and an 11-8 overall mark. Weissbourd was instrumental as the Crimson secured a spot in the EIVA playoffs for the first time since 2005.
