Strong academic performance has been a common theme in Andy Sythe's 23 years at the helm of the 49er track & field/cross country program. The women's squad has consistently earned all-academic recognition from the USTFCCCA as a result of a cumulative team grade-point average of 3.00 or better. Over 300 student-athletes have also earned academic all-conference honors under Sythe's guidance.
