NEW ORLEANS, La. – Scholar Teams of the Year and All-Academic Team honors for the 2017-18 NCAA Division II Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field seasons were announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Thursday.
The two indoor national champions on the men's and women's side took care of business in the classroom like they did on the track as the men from Pittsburg State and women from West Texas A&M were honored as the top scholar teams from the indoor season. For outdoors, the men's program of Ashland and the women's unit from Saint Augustine's took the top spot.
In order to be considered for Scholar Team of the Year, a program must finish highly at the national championships meet and have at least a 3.00 cumulative team GPA.
The Mars Hill women's track and field team had a combined GPA of 3.28.
