Huskies Place 13 on Pac-10 All-Academic Teams

Dec. 10, 2007

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.-- A total of 13 Washington student-athletes earned mention on the Pac-10's All-Academic cross country teams, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today. Three Huskies were awarded for their outstanding work in the classroom with second team recognition. Washington's 13 honorees tied for second-most in the Pac-10, marking the sixth-consecutive year it has ranked in the top-three.

To be eligible for Pac-10 All-Academic honors, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic year at their current institution, have a minimum 3.0 grade-point-average and be a starter or significant contributor.

Every eligible member of the women's group that traveled to the NCAA Championships earned All-Academic mention, including second team members Trisha Rasmussen (3.66, Community, Environment, and Planning) and Brooke Anderson (3.85, Business Administration). The second team honor is the second-straight for Rasmussen, a senior who ran fifth for the Huskies at NCAA's.

Five additional women earned honorable mention, including junior Anita Campbell (3.05, Pre-Major) and sophomore Katie Follett (3.34, Pre-Health Science), who led the Huskies to a program-best eighth-place NCAA finish and both earned All-American honors with Top-20 finishes. Juniors Amanda Miller (3.48, Communication) and Dani Schuster (3.39, Psychology), and sophomore Anna Imperati (3.49, Pre-Social Science) also earned honorable mention.

Red-shirt freshman Riley Booker (3.60, Pre-Major) led the Husky men honorees with his first career second team honor. Senior Carl Moe (3.01, Economics), juniors Jon Harding (3.44, Economics) and Caleb Knox (3.15, English), sophomore Chris Ahl (3.50, Business Administration) and red-shirt freshman Brian Govier (3.10, Pre-Social Science) all earned honorable mention.
