Quinnipiac Women's Indoor Track and Field Leads All MAAC Schools With 20 All-Academic Team Honorees

NEW YORK, N.Y. – A total of 20 members of the Quinnipiac women's indoor track and field team were named to the 2013-14 MAAC Women's Indoor Track and Field All-Academic Team on February 21, 2014. Quinnipiac led all seven MAAC programs with their 20 student-athlete honorees who earned the distinction.

To be eligible for the MAAC All-Academic Team, a student-athlete must complete two semesters at their institution and hold a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.20 on a 4.0 scale. A consistent fixture among the University's most successful programs in the classroom, the women's indoor track and field team carried their success over from the cross country season and continues to show an unwavering dedication academically.

Among the Bobcats' student-athletes honored are 87.5 percent (14-of-16) of Quinnipiac's group of upperclassmen/graduate students and 50 percent (6-of-12) of the sophomore contingent who earned the award in their first year of eligibility. Quinnipiac's academic success translated directly from the 2013 cross country season as 10-of-12 members from Quinnipiac's All-Academic Team also made the MAAC indoor track and field All-Academic Team. Another signficant feat for this Quinnipiac squad is the difficulty of major as seven honorees are studying to become Phyisican's Assistants, while six more are studying Physical Therapy. Overall, 80 percent (16-of-20) of the Bobcats study a health science major which require the most credits per semester as well as significant clinical hours.
