6/19/2002

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Georgetown University’s Nathan “Josh” Rollins (Odenton, Md./Arundel) has been named to the 2001-2002 Verizon Academic All-America University Division Men’s Track & Field Third Team as announced by Verizon and the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). A three-time All-American, and BIG EAST champion in the long jump, triple jump, and high jump, Rollins maintained a 3.556 grade point average as a first-year graduate student in Georgetown’s liberal studies program, where his focus is social and public policy.

The national award comes after Rollins picked up All-District academic honors.  Rollins, a BIG EAST Academic All-Star for the past four years, was an undergraduate marketing major in Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business.  He also earned a sociology minor when graduating in the spring of 2001.

On the track, Rollins has twice earned the title of BIG EAST Most Outstanding Field Performer, and has set outdoor school records in the triple jump (54’ 4 ¾”) and high jump (7’ ¼”).  This season, Rollins placed seventh at the 2002 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in New Orleans, La., with a mark of 52’ 2”.  Rollins met NCAA automatic qualifying standards in the triple jump with a leap of 53’ 11 ¼” at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championship earlier this season, where he also produced an NCAA provisional qualifying mark in the long jump (25’ 4 ¾”) to help guide Georgetown to a second place team finish.

As part of an overall expansion of the Verizon Academic All-America program, a men’s track/cross country team was selected in the University and College Divisions for the first time in the history of the program, with a women’s selection to be announced on June 20.
