Antioch High School grad and North Central College junior Brian Read was named to the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin Academic All-Conference Team for the spring semester.
To be included, student-athletes had to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale and earn a varsity letter.
Read competes in track at North Central, which is located in Naperville.
The physics major threw the discus 147 feet and the javelin 151-9 for his best performances this past season.
He finished eighth in the discus in the CCIW meet.
During the indoor season, Read also threw the 35-pound weight. The weight throw is not the same as the hammer throw, as the hammer only weighs about 17 pounds.
Read graduated from Antioch High in 2011.
In high school, he was a standout offensive lineman for the Sequoits’ football program and also threw the shot and discus for the track team.
This was the third straight year that Read was named to the CCIW’s All-Academic Team.
