A-State Cross Country Honored For Academic Excellence

January 30, 2020

JONESBORO, Ark. (1/30/20) – Not only did Arkansas State post excellent results on the cross country course in 2019, but also posted a strong semester in the classroom, being recognized by the USTFCCCA with All-Academic honors.

Both the A-State men’s and women’s teams were named All-Academic Teams, with Bennett Pascoe and Pauline Meyer earning All-Academic Athlete honors due to their top-25 regional finishes.

The Arkansas State men, which finished a program-best second in the Sun Belt, posted a 3.61 GPA, which led the league as one of three Sun Belt teams to earn All-Academic laurels. The women, who claimed their first conference crown since 2013, earned a 3.69 mark in the classroom.

Pascoe was the only Sun Belt runner on the 117-athlete list for the men’s honorees while Meyer was one of two from the league earning the distinction out of 166 women, joining individual conference champion Lotte Meyberg of Georgia State.

In order to qualify, teams must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale while student-athletes must have a GPA of at least 3.25 and finish in the top-25 (or 10 percent) at the NCAA Regional Championships or as an All-American at the NCAA Championships.

A total of 237 women’s teams received All-Academic honors in Division I, including four Sun Belt squads, while 191 men’s teams earned All-Academic distinction.
