UAA skier Ebner honors for work in classroom

UAA nordic skier Lukas Ebner earned a Capital One Academic all-district at-large honor Friday. 

Ebner, who is from Germany, recently graduated cum laude with a 3.76 GPA and a double major in marketing and finance. 

Ebner produced eight top-five finishes out of 10 races this season, including wins at the Montana State and New Mexico invitationals. He was a two-time All-America performer at the NCAA championships in March. 

As an all-district honoree, Ebner advances to the national ballot for a chance at an All-America academic award. 

The men’s at-large category includes athletes in 12 sports — fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, riflery, skiing, swimming, tennis, wrestling, volleyball and water polo.
