Women’s Scholar Team of the Year Nods Handed to Texas, Oklahoma in Division I

NEW ORLEANS – The women’s track & field teams at the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma were named Thursday as Scholar Teams of the Year in Division I for the 2011 seasons by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The squads earned the distinction as a result of being the highest-placing teams with at least a 3.00-cumulative GPA at the most recent NCAA indoor and outdoor championship, respectively. In addition, the USTFCCCA announced 164 teams as All-Academic teams for the track & field seasons.

Indoor Track & Field Scholar Team of the Year – Texas

Texas finished as the nation’s runner-up at the NCAA Indoor Championships back in March. The Longhorns scored 38 led by performances by Mia Behm in the 5000 meters, Shanay Briscoe in the high jump, and Chantel Malone in both the long and triple jump. Behm, Briscoe, and Malone are among 12 from Texas who earned individual All-Academic honors last week.

Texas has a cumulative team GPA of 3.28 through the 2011 spring semester.

Outdoor Track & Field Scholar Team of the Year – Oklahoma

The Sooners claimed a fourth-place showing at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in June, scoring 42 points, just seven behind three-peat champion Texas A&M. Eight from Oklahoma, including NCAA javelin champion Brittany Borman, earned All-Academic honors for the track & field seasons last week.

Oklahoma has a 3.03 cumulative team GPA.
