June 22, 2009

PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State's Sara Trané has been selected to the 2008-09 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Women's Track & Field/ Cross Country national third team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

This is the second consecutive year that Trané (pronounced trah-knee-ah) has been accorded the national third-team honor. She had three consecutive selections to the Women's District VIII first team. A senior from Pixbo, Sweden, Trané graduated in May with a degree in psychology and a 3.96 grade point average. She was the captain and top runner on WSU's cross country team last fall taking 18th at the Pacific-10 Conference meet, and a two-time Pac-10 steeplechase champion in 2007 and 2008. After an injury-plagued spring, Trané finished fifth in steeple at 2009 conference meet. In addition, she took fourth place in the 400m hurdles at the 2006 Pac-10 Championships. Trané holds school records in the 3000m steeplechase (10:14.29), 3000m (9:28.54i), and the distance medley relay (11:17.92i). She participated in the 2008 NCAA Outdoor Championships taking 19th in steeple. She is Washington State's Pac-10 Conference medal winner for 2009, an NCAA Woman of Year nominee, won the Cougar Pride Trophy, and was awarded Senior Excellence in Academics. Trané was also a United States Track & Field/Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) academic first team selection in both 2007 and 2008.
