The 2016 Beloit College Women's Cross Country team found their way again on to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches All-Academic Team, released today by the organization.
Under head coach Dave Eckburg and Cross Country Coordinator Brian Bliese, the Buccaneers had the 13th-highest GPA in NCAA Division III for the 2016 season with a 3.68 grade-point-average out of 216 teams. Beloit led NCAA III in GPA in 2014 and had the seventh-highest in 2015.
For a team to be considered for this distinction, it must have competed and compiled a team score at an NCAA Regional Meet. The team must also have a minimum team GPA of 3.10 on a 4.0 scale.
Beloit had the highest GPA among eight Midwest Conference Women's teams honored and were one of 16 NCAA Division III Women's squads in Wisconsin recognized.
