LOGAN, Utah -
All-Academic Team honors for the 2017 NCAA Division I Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field seasons were announced Thursday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) and both of Utah State’s men’s and women’s track & field teams were recognized.
All told, 360 Division I teams were honored by the USTFCCCA for their academics, including 218 on the women’s side and 142 men’s programs.
The Aggie women had a cumulative GPA of 3.53, while the men carried a 3.31.
The highest cumulative GPA of any team belonged to San Francisco women for the second consecutive year. The Dons maintained a 3.80 GPA under head coach Helen Lehman-Winters. On the men’s side, New Mexico held down the top spot with a cumulative GPA of 3.53.
The Scholar Teams of the Year went to the Texas A&M men and the Georgia women, who both swept the indoor and outdoor honors after standing out in the classroom and in competition. In order to be in contention for the Scholar Team of the Year, a program must finish highly at the respective national championship meet and have at least a 3.00 cumulative GPA.
Texas A&M won the indoor team title and finished second to Florida during the outdoor season. The Aggies carried a 3.02 GPA.
Georgia, which maintained a 3.32 GPA, finished runner-up twice to Oregon at both the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships.
