LOS ANGELES - Both Occidental men's and women's cross country teams and five individuals received recognition for their excellence in the classroom on Friday.
The Oxy men's and women's teams have been consistently named All-Academic by the USTFCCCA in all divisions.
For a team to be considered for the honor, it must have competed and compiled a team score at a NCAA Regional Meet, while having a minimum team GPA of 3.10.
Aria Blumm, Eva Townsend and Sabrina Thurber from the women's team, and Thomas Robertson and Keenan Leary, from the men's team earned individual recognition for earning a GPA of 3.30 or higher and finishing in the top-25 percent in the West Region race.
"We're very proud of our teams academic achievements. Last Fall, both the men's and women's teams did a wonderful job in the classroom, and at practice epitomizing the DIII philosophy of academic and athletic harmony," said Oxy head coach Rob Bartlett.Follow Oxy Athletics on Twitter Sign Up for Newsletters Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
