COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina senior track member Elliott Haynie has been named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America team for the second consecutive year, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Tuesday.

Haynie was named a second team Academic All-American by the organization this year after earning third team honors in 2009. He is the first two-time recipient from the South Carolina men’s track and field team. Earlier this year he also earned his third consecutive Academic All-District First Team selection.

Haynie established himself as the SEC’s premier pole vaulter this season in winning the SEC Indoor and Outdoor titles. He is the first double-crown winner in Gamecock history and currently holds the South Carolina outdoor record at 17’10 ½ (5.45m). He posted the top qualifying mark at the NCAA East Preliminary Round and advanced to the NCAA Outdoor Championship finals. During the indoor season, Haynie earned his first All-America citation in a Gamecock uniform after placing ninth at the NCAA Indoor Championships. A transfer from Gardner-Webb, Haynie was a four-time Atlantic Sun champion in his two years in Boiling Springs.
