Kristen Denk, Caleigh Lofstead and Margaret Ollinger garnered individual All-Academic recognition from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) for their outstanding performance in the classroom. The cross country teams made another appearance at the NCAA South Region Cross Country Championships, with the women’s team placing in the top 10. The Track & Field season concluded with Kristen Denk qualifying for the NCAA National Championships and earning NCAA second team All-American honors.
