Austin, Texas - June 20, 2019 - Springfield College's Jannik Haas (San Jose, Calif.) was chosen to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® Division III At-Large Second Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-America® At-Large Team, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances in their competitive arenas and in the classroom. With the recognition, Haas becomes the 44th Springfield College student-athlete to earn Academic All-America® honors, and is just the third Springfield College men's gymnast to ever receive the honor. In the 2018-19 academic year, a total of five Springfield College student-athletes were named to Google Cloud Academic All-America teams, including women's gymnastics Jess Clemens, football's Andrew Papirio and John Cox, and Brad Deckel of the men's soccer program.
The At-Large Division includes student-athletes from the sports of fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming and diving, tennis, water polo for both men and women; bowling, crew and field hockey for women; and volleyball and wrestling for men. Haas was the only Division III men's gymnast in the country to earn the all-america honor and was one of 15 student-athletes on the second team.
It was a decorated four-year career for Haas, who recently graduated from Springfield College with a degree in Mathematics with a 3.96 grade point average. A two-time captain during his time with the men's gymnastics program, Haas was both a USAG and CGA All-America Scholar Athlete, was a five-time All-America honoree at the USAG Championships, and a three-time NCAA National Collegiate Championships qualifier. In addition, he served as an executive board member of Springfield's Student-Athlete Leadership Team and was a co-winner of the 2019 Tom Waddell "Leveling the Playing Field" Award, which is presented during Springfield's annual Sport and Social Justice Symposium.
