DeLallo, Fanning Named Capital One Academic All-District


ALBANY, N.Y. – The 2013 Capital One Academic All-District ® Track / Cross Country Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. University at Albany sophomore John DeLallo and junior Kathryn Fanning have earned First-Team Academic All-District honors, and will advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot

Helping the UAlbany men to their ninth straight America East Outdoor Track and Field title, DeLallo led the 4x800m team to an America East Championship win (7:32.52), while also placing fifth in the 1500m run with an IC4A qualifying time of 3:48.79. In addition, DeLallo ran a conference-best 4x800m time (7:30.45) at Penn Relays and won the 800m at the Upstate Track and Field Classic (1:52.36).

During the indoor season, the sophomore captured the 1,000m America East title (2:27.64), as the Great Danes won their eighth consecutive indoor championship. DeLallo also placed second in the 1,000m run at the IC4A Championship (2:24.63).

A native of Marietta, N.Y., DeLallo boasts a 3.81 as a physics major and was named an America East All-Academic Team selection in both the indoor and outdoor seasons.

On the women’s side, Fanning helped UAlbany to their fifth straight America East Outdoor Track and Field title. The junior piloted UAlbany’s 4x800m relay team that overcame the rest of the field by nearly eight seconds, running a 9:00.89 title-winning and ECAC-qualifying mark. Fanning shattered UAlbany’s 1,500m record (4:22.83) at the UConn Invite, breaking a school-best mark that stood since 2006 and qualified for the NCAA East Regional with the blistering run. The Fayetteville, N.Y. native was also a member of the 4x800m relay team that set a new school record, running an 8:48.83 in the Championship of America Race at Penn Relays.

In the indoor season, Fanning broke a program record and qualified for ECACs in every event in which she competed. Leading UAlbany with individual triumphs in the 1,000m (2:50.36) and mile run (4:46.64) at the America East Championship, the Great Danes claimed their third conference team title in the last four years. She also led the program to its best-ever finish at the ECAC Championship, shattered her already owned school record in the mile with a title-winning time of 4:43.23, and anchored a program record-breaking 4x800m relay performance (2:11.4). Fanning also ran the 1600m leg of the distance medley relay at the 106th Millrose Games, breaking the program record with a time of 11:34.18.

Fanning, a researcher at the RNA Institute and published author in the Journal of Neuroscience, has earned a 3.99 cumulative GPA in the classroom as a biology major. She was also selected to the America East All-Academic Team in both the indoor and outdoor seasons.
