- University of Denver junior Nordic skier Linn Eriksen has been named to the CoSIDA At-Large Academic All-District 7 First Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America announced on Thursday.

This honor goes to the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances both athletically and in the classroom. 

The Oslo, Norway native laid claim to a perfect 4.0 GPA in her junior campaign. 

Eriksen competed in eight total races throughout the 2017 season, recording her best finish at the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association (RMISA) Championships in the Freestyle race, where she placed second. In addition to her strong outing in the Freestyle, Eriksen also finished fourth in the Classical race at the same meet, collecting her best two finishes of the season.
