Bastian Earns CoSIDA Academic All-District for At-Large

Tallahassee, Fla.  – Izaak Bastian was named to the 2021-22 Academic All-District Men’s At-Large Team for the second time in his career, which is selected by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America). The award recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances in competition and in the classroom.

“Izaak exemplifies the epitome of a student-athlete,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “He was an incredible leader, and he did so much for this program. He is going to move on and do incredible things and I am just so proud of the career he had.”

Bastian was one of 10 student-athletes from three different sports selected from district four, which includes schools from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and South Carolina.

Bastian graduated in April earning his bachelor’s degree. He was named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the fourth time in his career. He was also awarded the ACC Postgraduate Scholarship, as he plans to continue his studies in athletic training.  He has also been named a CSCAA Scholar All-American three times.

In his senior season, Bastian helped the Noles set the school record in the 200 medley relay, helping the team win bronze at the 2022 ACC Championships. He went on to compete in the medley relays at the NCAA Championships and was named the Coaches’ Award winner at the end of the season banquet.

Bastian is a three-time FSU record holder, including owning the marks in the 100 breast (51.84) and 200 breast (1:53.81). He is a five-time ACC medalist, two-time All-American, and two-time honorable mention.


Prior to the season, Bastian represented the Bahamas at the 2020 Olympic Games as a three-time national record holder. He also served his senior season as a team captain.

First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. First, second, and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in June.
