BOSTON, Mass. – Last week, the Wheelock College men's cross country team earned a place on the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association 2016 All-Academic Teams honoree list.
This is the first time men's cross country has earned a team academic award and joined 173 squads on the USTFCCCA's list for Division III. In order to be considered for the honor, teams must have competed and compiled a team score in an NCAA Regional meet while holding a minimum GPA of 3.10.
Wheelock is the only New England Collegiate Conference team to garner the distinction on the men's side while Elms College and Southern Vermont College made the list on the women's side. You can view the full release here.
