CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A combined 25 student-athletes from MIT's men's and women's indoor and outdoor track and field teams were named to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic Team for the 2013-14 year. The organization honored student-athletes for their efforts, both in the classroom and competition.
On the men's side, MIT finished second with 12 honorees and was one of two programs with double-digit representation. The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse earned the top spot with 17, and similar to the men's team, the Eagles' women's squad was the best represented with 14 student-athletes, while MIT finished second with 13.
To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.30 (4.0 scale) and have either competed in an NCAA Indoor or Outdoor Championship or finished the regular season ranked in the top 35 in an individual event or top 25 in a relay event.
