NEW ORLEANS — The Sacramento State men's and women's track & field teams and five individuals were recognized by the United States Track & Field/Cross Country Coaches Association for their academic performance.
The Hornet men posted a 3.18 cumulative grade point average which was the best among public institutions in California. The women's team finished with a cumulative GPA of 3.17 which ranked third among UC and CSU schools — trailing only Cal (3.21) and Cal Poly (3.18).
Individually, three women and two men each earned the USTFCCCA academic award during the track & field season. The women were represented by Shilah Bedingfield, Emilia Del Hoyo and Carly Schulz. Cory Barger and Max Jette earned the award for the men.
In order to be in contention for Scholar Team of the Year, a program must finish highly at the respective national championship meet and have at least a 3.00 cumulative team GPA. To qualify for USTFCCCA All-Academic individual honor, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have finished the regular season ranked in the national top 96 in an individual event or have participated in any round of the NCAA Division I Championships (including preliminary rounds).
Sacramento State also had 32 members of its track & field team earn Big Sky all-academic honors following the spring semester. Each member of the group, which was comprised of 22 women and 11 men, owns a GPA of at least 3.2 and competed in at least 50 percent of the team's competitions or advanced to the Big Sky Outdoor Championships.
