Cross Country teams earn All-Academic honors

February 09, 2017

Both the men’s and women’s cross country squads at Earlham College have been named All-Academic teams by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

For a team to be considered for this distinction, it must have competed and compiled a team score at an NCAA Regional Meet. The team members also must have an accumulated minimum team grade-point average (GPA) of 3.10 on a 4.0 scale.

The women’s team finished with a 3.76 GPA, the third highest in all of NCAA Division III. The men’s team had a 3.40 team GPA, finishing in the top half of the 173 Division III men’s teams that were honored.

Earlham College, a national liberal arts college located in Richmond, Indiana, is a "College That Changes Lives." We expect our students to be fully present: to think rigorously, value directness and genuineness, and actively seek insights from differing perspectives. The values we practice at Earlham are rooted in centuries of Quaker tradition, but they also constitute the ideal toolkit for contemporary success. Earlham is one of only 40 national liberal arts colleges ranked among U.S. News and World Reports' "Great Schools at a Great Price."
