The entire Central College women’s track and field team was honored for its performance in the classroom, but three May graduates served as the catalyst by earning spots on the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Academic Team.

In order to qualify for the team award, the GPA of the team’s entire roster must combine to equal 3.10. The Dutch reached a 3.35 GPA as a team.

Representing the class of 2017 are Emma Drees, Morgan Koenigs and Lorell Stuht were the three Central athletes to land the individual honor.

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.
