RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician College student-athlete Mike Secreti (Paramus, N.J./Paramus) has been voted to the Capital One Academic All-District Men's Cross-Country/Track & Field First Team for District 1 in NCAA Division II, as coordinated and selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
As a First Team selection, Secreti will move on to represent Felician on the Division II Capital One Academic All-America® ballot.
A 5-11, 145-pound sophomore, Secreti is an Academic All-District selection for the first team. He is the 19th Golden Falcon to earn the honor at least once, including the third in men's cross-country.

In 2014, Secreti finished third in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men's Cross-Country Championship race, earning all-CACC honors for the first time. He finished in the top 10 in all six of his regular-season races, including a 25:54 for 8,000 meters at the Highlander Challenge on Oct. 4. That marked the sixth-fastest 8K in the history of the Felician program.
Felician does not sponsor varsity men's track & field, but Secreti entered the 2015 CACC Championship as an individual and won the 5,000-meter run. He is a psychology major with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.98.
CoSIDA's District I for NCAA Division II is comprised of all members of the CACC, East Coast Conference, and Northeast-10 Conference.
