The Central College men’s track and field program had three individuals named to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Academic Team.

Will Daniels, Mark Fairley and Ryan Kruse earned the distinction.

To qualify for the honor, student-athletes must post a 3.3 or better combined GPA and compete in an NCAA Division III indoor or outdoor championship or finish the regular season ranked in the top 35 in the nation in an individual event.

Fairley and Kruse were also recipients in 2016. Daniels was a first-time honoree. The Dutch men have had 29 athletes win the honor 40 times.
