NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Long Beach State women's cross country team earned 2011 Division I All-Academic Cross Country status from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced Monday afternoon.
The 49er women were among 205 institutions and one of four schools from the Big West to earn all-academic status for 2011 by the USTFCCCA. This was the 11th consecutive year the women's team from LBSU has received the distinction from the USTFCCCA.
LBSU finished in 11th out of 31 teams in the NCAA West Regional, collecting 332 points. Prior to the NCAA regional, the 49ers were coming off from a second-place finish at the Big West Championships in Riverside. It was the highest finish for the women's team since the 2006 conference championship.
"This is a awesome sign that student-athletes at Long Beach State can run at the highest levels and achieve great things in the classroom at the same time," LBSU distance coach Patrick Cunniff said. "We are constantly encouraging our kids to attack both challenges and these awards show the fruits of that labor. We also owe a huge thanks to Tamika Spivey and the staff at the Bickerstaff Academic Center, for all the work they do to support and assist out student-athletes academically. 2011 was truly a historic Cross Country season and these awards make this, another great day at The Beach!!
Scholar Athletes are determined from among those who earned All-Academic status and placed highest individually at the most recent NCAA Championships.
