Princeton junior fencer Jonathan Yergler has been named a Capital One Academic All-District honoree in District II, adding an honor to a year that saw Yergler win the NCAA epee championship.

Yergler became the first Princeton fencer since 2001 to earn an NCAA individual title, and now he is one of 15 student-athletes in District II to be honored with a place on the Academic All-District team. The at-large teams encompass several sports, and among the 15 in District II are tennis players, swimmers, wrestlers, lacrosse players, golfers and a gymnast.

Yergler was one of only two fencers to be named to an All-District team, along with Anthony Lin of Duke in District III. District II includes the District of Columbia, Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

All of the All-District honorees will be eligible to earn Academic All-America honors, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
