Central College’s women’s cross country team earned “U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association” all-academic team honors for the fourth straight year, and both the men and women earned individual academic awards. To earn the award, a student-athlete must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.30 and must have finished in top 25 percent in their regional championship. Recognized individually were Alyssa Eaves on the women’s team, Drew Jackson and former Knoxville High athlete, Jamie Vander Veer of the men’s squad.
