TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior Austin Webb earned Academic All-American honors, in results released Nov. 18 by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Webb earned a spot on the CoSIDA / NCAA Division III Academic All-America third team as a forward after an outstanding season on the field and in the classroom.

Webb was named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Offensive Most Valuable Player after helping lead the Fightin' Engineers to the regular season league title.  He scored a team-high 10 goals, including two game winners, to capture his third career all-conference honor.  His accolades on the field include 22 goals, eight assists and 52 points in 63 career appearances.

In the classroom, Webb carries a 3.67 grade point average.  He is a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta honor fraternity and serves as House Manager for Triangle fraternity.

Rose-Hulman student-athletes have now combined for 123 Academic All-American awards, including 31 consecutive years with at least one Academic All-American.  The 31-year streak ranks sixth among all NCAA institutions and first in NCAA Division III.  Webb also captured the eighth Academic All-American honor in Fightin' Engineer men's soccer history.

The men's soccer team finished 14-6 and advanced to the HCAC Tournament championship game before falling to eventual NCAA representative Hanover.  Rose-Hulman has won six conference regular season championships since 2008 and has a mark of 65-5-9 in league play in the nine-year head coach career of Sean Helliwell.
