Women’s track and field earns all-academic honors
The women’s track and field team has been named an all-academic team for the 2013-2014 academic year by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association. The Seahawks have been recognized for three straight years.
To qualify for all-academic status, the cumulative team GPA must equal or exceed 3.10. The 33 members of the 2014 squad achieved a 3.21 team GPA, with 26 achieving an individual GPA of 3.0 or better, and 13 recording 3.3 or greater.
“It is very rewarding to have our team and so many of our individuals recognized for their academic achievements,” said head coach Matt Hird. “They represent the fundamental philosophy of Division III, and what makes coaching them so much fun and so productive, they are outstanding representatives of our sport and Salve Regina.”
