Women's Track & Field earns USTFCCCA All-Academic honor

NEW ORLEANS – Concordia University Wisconsin's Women's Track & Field team earned All-Academic status as the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, as the organization announced the women's All-Academic team Tuesday afternoon.

CUW was one of 148 women's teams to be named to the All-Academic team, as a 3.10 GPA or higher was required for recognition. The Northern Athletics Conference was well represented on the list as six of nine schools who compete in Women's Track & Field made the list.

Wartburg College and UW-Oshkosh took home the Scholar Team of the Year awards, with Wartburg capturing the Outdoor title and Oshkosh garnering the indoor award. Since 2007 the two schools have accounted for 10 of the 14 major awards between the indoor and outdoor seasons.

The Falcons competed in 10 events in 2013, which included a pair of 5th-place finishes at the NAC Indoor and Outdoor Championships.
