Posted By Sports On August 16, 2011 @ 5:56 am In Today’s Local Sports | Comments Disabled

Proving that its members are, indeed, students first and athletes second, the Central College women’s track and field squad has again been named a Division III All-Academic Team.  It is the fifth consecutive year that the Dutch have earned the academic honor, which is designated by the U.S. Track and Field & Cross Country Coaches Association. 

Three of Central’s athletes received individual academic honors, having achieved a 3.3 or better GPA; while meeting an NCAA automatic or provisional qualifying mark in an individual or relay event. 

To be named an All-Academic Team, a program must compile a team GPA of 3.1 or higher.  Central carried a 3.33 team grade point average. 

This year the Central College women’s track and field squad tied for 24th at the NCAA Indoor Championships, before finishing 17th in the outdoor meet.
