Skyring and Stauber Named COSIDA Academic All-Americans

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State track and field athletes Maudie Skyring and Ruby Stauber were both named COSIDA Academic All-Americans Tuesday afternoon. Skyring was named a First-Team Academic All-American for the first time in her career while Ruby Stauber earned Second-Team Academic All-America honors. Skyring is the first Seminole to earn first-team honors since Stefan Brits in 2016.

“We’ve been fortunate to have many Academic All-Americans throughout our history, and it is exciting to be able to add to that tradition with Maudie and Ruby. I believe this is the highest honor our student-athletes can receive while they are here at Florida State, and I’m really proud of both Ruby and Maudie for their work both academically and athletically,” Head Coach Bob Braman said.

Both Skyring and Stauber were exceptional in the classroom. Both boasted a 4.0 GPA with Skyring majoring in exercise physiology and Stauber majoring in sport management. Skyring left her mark for the Garnet and Gold cross country and track and field teams.. Skyring finished second at the ACC Outdoor Championships in the 1500m run to earn First-Team All-ACC honors. During the cross country season, Skyring earned All-ACC honors and All-South Region and helped the Noles to a third-place finish at the ACC Cross Country Championships.

Stauber picked up an ACC outdoor title in the 800m run and finished second at the ACC Indoor Championships in the 800m run in her first season as a Nole. Stauber holds the school record for the indoor 800m run (2:04.31) and is No. 5 on FSU’s all-time list in the outdoor 800m run (2:03.54).
