York College rising senior Tim Hartung recently added another accolade to his 2012-13 campaign when he earned Capital One Division III Academic All-America honors for men's track and cross country as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
He was a third-team selection and was one of 46 student-athletes to earn the national honor.
Hartung is a nursing major and carries a 3.68 grade-point average at York. He was named to the District 4 Academic All-Region squad in late May.
In the fall, Hartung won the Capital Athletic Conference men's cross country individual championship, helping the Spartans repeat as conference champs. Hartung then went to the regionals and finished fifth to advance to his second straight NCAA Division III Championship. At the national championship meet in Terre Haute, Ind., Hartung finished seventh to earn the program's first men's cross country All-America finish.
Hartung earned the 2012 CAC Men's Cross Country Runner of the Year thanks to his second consecutive conference championship.
During the indoor season, Hartung picked up two more CAC titles, winning the mile and the 5K. It is the second year in a row that Hartung captured the titles in those two events during the CAC Indoor Championships.
During the outdoor season, Hartung added to his conference championship haul in early May, winning the 5K and 10K races. For his efforts in the spring, Hartung made history when he was named the 2013 CAC Men's Outdoor Track and Field Athlete of the Year. He is the first athlete in the 24-year history of the league that an athlete has won athlete of the year honors in three different sports. In addition to his cross country and outdoor track honors, he was the Indoor Athlete of the Year in February of 2012.
Hartung capped his junior season with an All-America finish at the Division III Outdoor Championships in LaCrosse, Wisc., in the 10K. Hartung finished seventh with a time of 30 minutes, 9.20 seconds to earn his second All-America accolade of the year.
