Kalis Honored as CoSIDA Academic All-American

(AUSTIN, Texas) – Carnegie Mellon University senior Ethan Kalis (Riverwoods, Ill. / Adlai E. Stevenson) was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America Men's Soccer Team. The honor for Kalis marks the second straight year, and 12th overall, the Tartans have had a member named an Academic All-American. Kalis was named to the third team and is one of three goalkeepers selected to the 35-member team.

Kalis earned the starting goalkeeper role this season and accumulated a record of 5-6-2 with one shutout. He was the winning keeper for the Tartans against #20 John Carroll in September. Off the field, Kalis carries a 4.0 GPA in business administration and was a global research summer analyst at Bank of America, where he'll return to for full-time employment after graduation. Kalis has been a senior mentor for Research and Asset Management Academy, a portfolio manager for Tartan Student Fund and has volunteered for Smithsonian Institute transcribing old writings.

The CoSIDA Academic All-America honor for Kalis marks the 24th honor for the Tartan men's soccer program.
