KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island sophomore Kellen Waters has been named to the Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference team for the first time in his career, the league announced Friday.
Waters broke two records this indoor season in the mile (4:06.32) and the 1000 meter (2:25.13). His record-setting mile time at the BU Valentine Invite shattered the previous record set nearly 30 years ago (4:07.70 in 1991). Waters then broke the 1000 meter record at the IC4A Championship, and a day later was named IC4A Indoor champion in the event.
At the Atlantic 10 Indoor Championship, Waters finished runner-up in the mile, adding crucial points for the Rams en route to their fifth indoor title in seven years.
He owns a 3.84 gpa in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in French.
