GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota student-athletes Jocelyne Lamoureux, Monique Lamoureux, Veronica Medon and Nick Mattson have been named to the 2012-13 Capital One Academic All-District At-Large Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Jocelyne Lamoureux and Medon both earned their second straight selections, while Monique Lamoureux and Mattson are each first-time honorees.

North Dakota’s four total selections were topped by only two other Division I institutions in the entire nation: the U.S. Naval Academy and Alabama. Penn State and West Virginia were the only other DI schools with four selections.

Additionally, UND was one of only five DI institutions with three selections on a single women’s academic all-district at-large team, joining the U.S. Naval Academy, Alabama, North Carolina and Penn State.

The team recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for athletic and academic performance in the following sports: Women's Bowling, Women's Crew, Men's and Women's Fencing, Women's Field Hockey, Men's and Women's Golf, Men's and Women's Gymnastics, Men's and Women's Ice Hockey, Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Men's and Women's Rifle, Men's and Women's Skiing, Men's and Women's Swimming, Men's and Women's Tennis, Men's Volleyball, Men's and Women's Water Polo, Men's Wrestling.

Jocelyne Lamoureux, an Academic All-American last season as a junior, was a first-team All-American and a top-10 finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award in 2012-13 after ranking third in the national scoring race with 81 points (35g, 46a) in 39 games. She was named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Most Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year for the second year in a row and graduated as the WCHA’s all-time leading scorer with 285 points in 149 career games. The Grand Forks, N.D., native is currently pursuing her master’s degree in kinesiology and owns a 4.0 grade point average.

Monique Lamoureux, a senior from Grand Forks, N.D., earned first-team All-America honors after leading the nation’s defensemen and ranking eighth among all players with 65 points (26g, 39a) in 39 games. She received UND’s Grace Rhonemus Female Athlete of the Year Award (all sports) and graduated as the second-leading scorer in the history of the WCHA with 265 points in 149 career games. A graduate student with a 4.0 GPA, Lamoureux is currently pursuing her master’s degree in kinesiology.

Both Lamoureuxs also helped lead the United States to a gold medal at the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship.

Medon, a senior from Huntsville, Ontario, broke three of her own school records (200 back, 100 back, 200 IM) at the 2012-13 Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Championship, recording NCAA “B”-cut standards in both backstroke events. A team captain who was voted the team’s most valuable swimmer, Medon also helped UND place third in the 200 free relay at the WAC Championship. Medon, a 2013 Academic All-WAC selection, is majoring in psychology with a criminal justice minor and boasts a 4.0 GPA.

Mattson, a sophomore defenseman from Chanhassen, Minn., collected 15 points (3g, 12a) in 38 games to go with a career-high +9 plus/minus rating. He received the WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award and was named to the All-WCHA Academic Team, while helping lead UND to the program’s 11th consecutive NCAA postseason appearance, the longest active streak in NCAA Division I men’s hockey. Mattson is a pre-entrepreneurship major with a 4.0 GPA.

All four student-athletes advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-Americans will be selected later this month.
