  • ASHLAND — Southern Oregon University's Eric Ghelfi and Alexandra Rudd have been voted onto the College Division Academic All-District 4 track and field/cross country teams, the College Sports Information Directors of America announced Thursday.
    Ghelfi was one of 13 men and Rudd one of 10 men on the teams, which recognize standout athletes with at least sophomore academic standing and cumulative grade-point averages of 3.3 or better. They're now among 48 men and 46 women in the NAIA who are nominees for the CoSIDA Academic All-American teams, which will be released in June.
    Ghelfi, a junior from Redding, Calif., is a psychology major who boasts a 3.89 GPA. He was an All-American twice this school year — first for placing 20th at the NAIA Cross Country Championships during the fall, then for taking eighth in the 10,000-meter race last week at the NAIA Track and Field Championships. He also won his first Cascade Conference title in the 10K.
    Rudd was SOU's top women's finisher at the NAIA Cross Country Championships in 49th, and this spring claimed fifth place in the 10,000-meter race and sixth in the 5K at the Cascade Conference Championships. The senior from North Bend, Wash., has a 3.82 GPA and is pursuing a degree in communications.
    Members of the District 4 teams were selected from 14 states and Canada.
