MADISON, Wis. -- The Edgewood College men's and women's cross country teams have been named All-Academic Teams by the United States Track and Field Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The women's team earned a 3.64 grade point average, while the men recorded a 3.10 grade point average during the fall semester.
To qualify for the honor, teams must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.10 or better and have competed and compiled a team score at an NCAA Regional Meet. The women's team placed 24th and the men's team 14th at the NCAA Midwest Regional in Winneconne, Wis. last November.
Four members of the women's team, Mya Kass, Morgan Dodson, Corrin Koslowski and Carrie Radel earned perfect 4.0 grade point averages in the first semester of the 2009-10 academic year. In all, eight of the nine members of the team recorded a grade point average higher than 3.40 in the fall. On the men's side, sophomore Connor Boushon had a perfect grade point average, while seven Eagles earned a grade point average of 3.00 or greater.
Edgewood College had the highest women's team grade point average out of the five Northern Athletics Conference schools to earn USTFCCCA All-Academic Team status. Benedictine University, Concordia University Chicago, Concordia University Wisconsin and Wisconsin Lutheran College also earned the honor. Two other NAC men's cross country teams, Benedictine University and Concordia University Wisconsin, also received recognition.
