BILLINGS — Rocky Mountain College’s Brenden Leaming has been selected to the 2018-19 Google Cloud academic all-America NAIA track and field/cross country first team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The senior was one of 10 student-athletes across the NAIA named to the men’s first team. One of the most accomplished sprinters in program history, Leaming holds seven school records in track and field. He set the records in the 60m, 200m, and 4x400m relay for men’s indoor track as well as the 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay, and 4x400m relay in men’s outdoor track.
Leaming earned his second career NAIA all-American selection during the 2019 NAIA indoor track and field national championships after running the 400m stretch on Rocky’s seventh-place distance medley relay team. He had previously earned the honor as part of Rocky’s fifth-place distance medley relay team in 2016.
Leaming graduated from Rocky Mountain College in May with a 3.97 GPA for which he was awarded the Dean’s Cup. He plans to pursue a doctorate degree in physical therapy at Eastern Washington University.
Leaming is Rocky Mountain College’s second student-athlete to receive Google Cloud academic all-American honors from CoSIDA this season. Max Gray was selected to the 2018 Google Cloud academic all-America NAIA football first team.
