Track and Field's Dutoit Named to Academic All-America Team
June 14, 2001
University of Arizona graduate Andrea Dutoit was named to the Verizon Academic All-America Spring Women's At Large team Thursday.
Dutoit, who won the pole vault title at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships two weeks ago, was also named the University Division's Team Member of the Year. She has a perfect 4.00 grade point average in physical science and molecular and cellular biology.
The Flagstaff, Ariz., native finished her Arizona career as a three-time All-American. She finished second at the NCAA Indoor Championships earlier this year and then capped her career with the NCAA Outdoor title two weeks ago in Eugene, Ore.
Dutoit set the indoor and outdoor school records this year - both at the respective NCAA Championships - with clearances of 13-9 ï¿½ (4.20m). Her marks are the second-best all-time in the Pacific-10 Conference.
Dutoit is one of the most accomplished student-athletes in Arizona history. She was an Academic All-America First Team member last year, too. She was named the Raytheon Female Athlete of the Year last year and was this year's Ruby Award winner, which is awarded to UA's top senior student-athlete.
Dutoit, who started her Arizona career as a walk-on in 1997, married former Arizona pole vaulter Jeff Dutoit last summer. She graduated from Arizona this past May and will attend medical school at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
