Recent Castleton University graduates and two-sport student-athletes Trevor Hanna (Whitehorse, Yukon) and Ryan Mulder (Ottawa, Ont.) have been voted to the Google Cloud Academic All-District I At-Large Team by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), announced Thursday by the national organization.
Hanna and Mulder were teammates on both the Spartan men's ice hockey and men's tennis teams for the past four years, each making significant contributions to their squads. Not including the just-completed Spring 2018 semester, Hanna had compiled a 3.99 grade point average as a double major in biology and adventure recreation, while Mulder's GPA was 3.94 as a business administration major.

Hanna served as an assistant captain for the Spartan ice hockey team in 2017-18 and earned team MVP honors after collecting five goals and seven assists in 25 games played. He scored the game-winning goal against Brockport to give Castleton the WSYB/Catamount Radio Invitational title. During the tennis season, he posted a 7-3 record in singles and an 8-2 mark in doubles, earning NAC East Second Team honors for the second time in his career.
Due to his work in the classroom, Hanna received All-Academic honors from the New England Hockey Conference three times and from the North Atlantic Conference twice, with the 2017-18 Winter/Spring NAC All-Academic Team to be announced soon. He was also named to the NAC Men's Tennis Sportsmanship Team this past spring for his demonstrated acts of sportsmanship and ethical behavior.
Mulder, 2017-18 captain and four-year goalie for the ice hockey team, leaves Castleton as the all-time leader in saves with 2,005 and in save percentage at .909, plus he is second in program history with 31 career wins. Mulder was nominated for the Hockey Humanitarian Award and received both the Male Coaches Award and the Rocky Mezzetta Award from the Castleton athletics department.
In tennis, Mulder was a two-time NAC East Second Team selection, finishing the 2018 season with a 22-11 career record in singles and a 24-8 career record in doubles. Like Hanna, Mulder is a three-time NEHC All-Academic and two-time NAC All-Academic honoree with a third NAC academic award a strong possibility. Among his community service projects, Mulder served as local club president for Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
The two Spartans are part of a highly accomplished Google Cloud Academic All-District I squad, as the 10 honorees have an average GPA of 3.938. Half of the team played ice hockey, and Hanna and Mulder are two of three two-sport athletes on the squad, along with Tyler Barr of MIT who played both tennis and water polo.
Hanna and Mulder advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® ballot, with Google Cloud Academic All-America® teams announced in June.
