Men and women’s cross-country earn All-Academic honors

LYNDON CENTER, Vt. – For the fifth time in just six years, both the men and women’s cross-country teams at Lyndon have won a United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Academic Team Award.

The award requires a team GPA of 3.1 and was given to 151 men’s teams and 207 women’s teams.  Both teams exceeded this mark with the men’s team earning a 3.39 GPA and the women’s team earning a 3.3 GPA.

Lyndon is the only North Atlantic Conference member to be named to both the men's and women's USTFCCCA All-Academic team.

“These two teams epitomize the student-athlete and what Division III is all about,” said head coach Chris Ummer.  “I’m very proud of them.”

The Maine Maritime men’s program and UMaine-Farmington women’s program joined Lyndon in the honor.
