Pitt State Women Named Scholar Team of the Year By USTFCCCA

Updated:
PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

The Pittsburg State University women's track & field program was named the NCAA Division II Scholar Team of the Year for the 2016 outdoor season by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The Gorillas, who captured the program's first ever national championship in May, received the national honor by being the highest placing team with at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average at this year's NCAA Division II Championships. Lincoln University, which claimed the 2016 indoor national championship, claimed the Scholar Team of the Year honors for the indoor season.

The Pitt State women carried a 3.33 cumulative team GPA in 2015-16. Eleven members of the Gorillas' national champion squad received All-Academic honors from the USTFCCCA, the third-most honorees among all Division II programs this year.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have reached a provisional or automatic qualifying standard for the NCAA Championships in either the indoor or outdoor seasons.

Grand Valley State led all teams with 17 honorees, ahead of GLIAC rivals Ashland and Hillsdale with 12 each. Five more programs registered 11 honorees apiece, including Pitt State.

The Gorillas honorees include: Jena Black, Olivia Boone, Cassie Caswell, Emilyn Dearman, Hannah DeVries, Heather Glenn, Alyssa Hammons, Kelsey Lewis, Courtney Nelson, Megan Wickersham and Chandler Wilson.
