Bruxvoort Named Academic All-American

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa senior Mariel Bruxvoort was named to the CSC Academic All-American Third Team on Tuesday. 

Bruxvoort is the first Academic All-American at Iowa since 2012 and the first women’s track and field athlete to earn the honor since Lisa Skidmore in 1990. 

College Sports Communicators (formerly CoSIDA) began the Academic All-America program in 1952. The recognition is the longest running and premier award for athletic and academic success across championship college sports at all levels.  

On the track, Bruxvoort capped a stellar Hawkeye career with a third-place finish in the 400-meter hurdles at the Big Ten Championships, qualifying for the NCAA West Preliminary. 

Bruxvoort was Big Ten Athlete of the Week for her 400-hurdle win at the USF Alumni Invite. 

Previously, Bruxvoort was a first-team All American in the outdoor 4×400-meter relay in 2022 and an All-American Honorable Mention in the outdoor 400 meters in 2023. Bruxvoort was the leading leg on the 2022 squad that owns the program record in the 4×400, racing 3:32.28 at the Tyson Invitational.
