Nineteen Earn All-Academic Honors

Jul 28, 2021

STANFORD TRACK AND FIELD earned team academic awards and 19 Cardinal earned All-Academic honors from the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. 

Both the Stanford men and women were among those earning All-Academic team distinction. The Cardinal women had a team GPA of 3.788, the third-highest among NCAA Division I women's programs. The men had a GPA of 3.657, also third-highest.

The individuals were selected by having cumulative grade-point averages of at least 3.25 combined with advancing to at least the NCAA prelims outdoors, or being ranked among the nation's top 96 indoors. 

Ten Stanford women and nine Cardinal men made the cuts. Among them were first-team outdoor All-Americans Christina Aragon, Ella Donaghu, Julia Heymach, and Virginia Miller among the women, and Charles Hicks among the men. All three Cardinal U.S. Olympic Trials finalists – Heymach (1,500 meters), Miller (javelin), and Keyshawn King (triple jump) – were among the All-Academic selections.
