Peter Malnati has been named to the CoSIDA Acaemic All-District VII Men's At-Large Team. Malnati, a senior of the Mizzou men's golf team, has a 4.0 grade-point-average as a journalism major at MU. This marks the second-straight year Malnati has earned a spot on the team.

Eligible sports for the Men's At-Large team are fencing, golf, gymnastics, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo and wrestling. In the at-large program, nominations are limited to three per school per gender.

Thus, each institution may nominate a total of three men's at-large candidates and three women's at-large candidates. If an institution participates in both the college and the university divisions, it may nominate a total of three men and three women between the two divisions. There is no limit to the number of candidates that may be nominated for a particular sport.

To be nominated, the student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for his/her career. No athlete is eligible until he/she has reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his/her current institution (thus, true freshmen, red-shirt freshmen and ineligible transfers are not eligible). In the cases of transfers, graduate students and junior college graduates, the athlete must have completed one full academic year at the nominating institution to be eligible.

Malnati is also a three-time Academic All-Big 12 selection. He finished in a tie for 21st place at last week's NCAA Regional in Stillwater, Okla.
