Women's Cross Country Honored With Academic Award
Posted: Tuesday, February 26, 2008
NEW ORLEANS, La. - The UW-Eau Claire women's cross country team was honored today by being named as an NCAA Division III All-Academic Team by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
For a team to be considered for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team award, it must have competed and compiled a team score at an NCAA Regional Meet. The team must also have a minimum 3.10 team cumulative grade point average.
This year a total of 141 Division III women's programs received the USTFCCCA's All-Academic Team honors compared to 112 schools from last season. Just over a third of all Division III institutions (390) who sponsor women's cross country received the honor. In addition, 30 of the 32 teams in the championship field at this year's NCAA Division III Cross Country Championships were named USTFCCCA All-Academic Teams.
