Men's Track Named All-Academic Team
The Husky men's track and field squad was honored today as an All-Academic team by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. The Huskies maintained an overall grad point average of 3.05 for the full team, one of just three teams out of the Pac-10 to earn the distinction, which requires a team-wide GPA of 3.00.
Arizona State and Stanford were the only other Pac-10 teams honored. Nation-wide, 73 men's teams earned the honor. Last week, the USTFCCCA honored Scott Roth, Ryan Vu, Jordan Swarthout, Jeremy Taiwo, Jimmy Brookman, and Joe Zimmerman for individual academic prowess as all six carry a GPA of better than 3.25.
The Husky men were the outdoor scholar team of the year back in 2008.
Women's team awards will be announced on Wednesday.
