NEW ORLEANS --- Although it may be summer, the George Fox men's and women's track and field team continue to bring home more awards, as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced eight All-Academic athletes and the women's track and field team on the Scholar Team list for the Bruins.

The women's track and field team posted a cumulative team GPA of 3.33. In order to be in contention to earn this honor a team must achieve at least a 3.00 cumulative team GPA. The USTFCCCA honored a total of 294 teams (183 women's, 111 men's) for the academics in the classroom.

The highest cumulative GPA went to the women from Saint Vincent College (3.727), and California Institute of Technology and Middleburry College tied on the men's side with a 3.62.

For the Bruin individuals the following athletes made the list: Caleb Dalzell, David Guild, Alex Canchola, Asia Greene, Kylie Weatherford, Dakota Buhler, Kiana Rasubala and Sarah King.

In order to qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic honors, student-athletes needed a cumulative GPA of 3.30 and needed to compete at the NCAA Indoor or Outdoor Championship or finish the regular season ranked in the national top-50 in an individual event or ranked in the national top-35 in a relay event on the official NCAA Descending Order List.
