2017-18 CoSIDA Google Cloud Academic All-District Men's At-Large 

 Bridgewater College senior attack Blake Mann was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District At-Large team, adding another academic first for the men's lacrosse standout.

Mann, who was the first BC men's lacrosse player to earn ODAC Scholar-Athlete, Geisert Scholar-Athlete, and VaSID Academic All-State honors, is the first in program history to earn this recognition as well.

The 2017-18 Google Cloud Academic All-District Men's At-Large Team, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the playing field and in the classroom. Sports that do not have their own Academic All-District/All-American teams are included in the at-large category, making it generally the most competitive.

Mann was a second team All-ODAC selection this spring, his first All-Conference honor.

He has maintained a 3.95 GPA as a health and exercise science major, was named to the VaSID Academic All-State team last year, and was this year's Bridgewater Geisert Scholar-Athlete award winner.

On the field, he ranked third in the ODAC in goals (50) and seventh in points (61). He also added 19 ground balls and 10 caused turnovers.

He was named to the USILA National Team of the Week earlier this season, after scoring six times vs. Southern Virginia and then four times against Randolph-Macon.

Mann graduates as Bridgewater's all-time leader in goals (161) and points (189).
