NEW ORLEANS – The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced today that the Lesley women's cross country team earned 2012 Division III All-Academic Cross Country Status.
To qualify as a USTFCCCA All-Academic Cross Country Team, a team must have had a cumulative team GPA of 3.10 or better. The Lynx had a cumulative team GPA of 3.48 and were the only team from the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) to be honored with the distinction.
There were a total of 197 institutions across the country designated with the honor.
This is not the first academic honor for the Lynx, as the NECC named seven women's cross country team members to the NECC Academic All-Conference team earlier this month.
