COLUMBUS, Ohio – Timothy Faust, a junior sprinter on the Ohio State men’s track and field team, has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District men’s track and field/cross country team for district five.

The 2013-14 Capital One Academic All-District® Men’s and Women’s Track & Field/Cross Country Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA’s Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.

Faust, who hails from Harvey, Ill., spouts a 3.54 cumulative grade-point-average in his pursuit of a degree in special education. He will now move onto the ballot for possible Academic All-America honors.

Faust is a three-time Ohio State scholar-athlete, a two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and a member of the 2013 USTFCCCA All-Academic team. The district honor is the first of Faust’s career.

On the track his accolades speak for themselves. The 2013 Big Ten champion in the indoor 200-meter run and 2014 Second Team All-American in the same event is also a six time All-Big Ten selection and a two-time outdoor Honorable Mention All-American in the 200m and as part of the 4×100-meter relay team.

This Friday, May 30, Faust will look to add to his athletic resume and advance in the 200m at the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Preliminary Championships taking place in Jacksonville, Fla.
