NEW ORLEANS — The Occidental men's and women's track and field teams were named USTFCCCA All-Academic squads for posting better than a 3.1 grade point average as a group.
Austin DeWitz, Brody Barkan, Emma Yudelevitch, Melissa Braun, Sabrina Degnan, Cora Davies and Allison Kilday were all named individual All-Academic award recipients for having above a 3.30 cumulative GPA and being ranked in the top 35 people in DIII in their event.
"We couldn't be more proud of the academic achievements the teams and individuals honored this morning by USTFCCCA for their hard work in the classroom and on the track," Oxy head coach Rob Bartlett said. "We strive to provide our student-athletes with the opportunity to thrive in every aspect of their Occidental lives and it's fantastic to see so many Tigers doing just that."
The Tigers had a strong season in competition as well with seven athletes making the National Championship Meet and four of them winning All-American honors.
