Brandeis University men’s swimming and diving senior Edan Zitelny of Syosset has been named to the Winter 2017 University Athletic Association (UAA) All-Academic Team.
Zietelny is one of 56 student-athletes from Brandeis, and one of 639 from across the conference to earn All-Academic honors. He is a 2013 graduate of Syosset High School.

Within the UAA, All-Academic Recognition is awarded to student-athletes who have completed at least one full year of college study and who carry a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.300. The 3.300 minimum cumulative grade point average is the same academic standard used as a qualifying threshold by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) for the nomination of Academic All-America candidates in all sports.

The UAA Presidents Council established a program of All-Academic recognition in April 1998. Qualifying student-athletes are recognized at the completion of the fall, winter, and spring seasons each year. The honor is intended to recognize the high level of academic achievement demonstrated by student-athletes who effectively balance their significant commitment of time, effort, and energy in athletic endeavor with their highly challenging academic responsibilities.
