Aug. 4, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana track and field had one of the best years in program history on the track. The Hoosiers had just as much success in the classroom this year. The United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced the national All-Academic teams, and the lists include 18 Hoosiers. The women's team includes 12 honorees, which tied with Texas for the third most from any program nationally. Six men were honored as well.
To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have met either of the following athletic standards: for the indoor season, a student-athlete must have finished the regular season ranked in the national top 96 in an individual event or ranked in the national top 48 (collective listing) in a relay event on the official NCAA POP list provided by TFRRS.org; for the outdoor season, a student-athlete must have participated in any round of the NCAA Division I Championships (including preliminary rounds).
