Flames And Lady Flames Named All-Academic Track & Field Athletes

Monday, July 26, 2021

The All-Academic Teams and All-Academic Athletes for the 2021 NCAA Division II Track & Field seasons were announced last week by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). Both the Lady Flames and Flames were All-Academic Teams and combined to account for eight All-Academic Athletes.

The Lady Flames recorded a cumulative GPA of 3.48, while the Flames garnered a cumulative GPA of 3.24 to become eligible for the All-Academic Teams designation.

For a team to be named an NCAA Division II All-Academic Team, the cumulative GPA for all student-athletes on the institution’s NCAA squad list for indoor and/or outdoor track & field must be 3.0 or higher.

Transfer students and/or graduate students are to include only grades earned at the current nominating institution

The six women’s track & field team members that earned All-Academic Athlete status were: Chloe Flora (Nursing), Brooke Long (Interdisciplinary Studies), Olivia McLain (Business Administration), Toni Moore (Sports Management), Celine Ritter (Psychology) and Liezl Theron (Biological Science). Overall, there were more than 375 women who were named All-Academic Athletes in NCAA Division II Women’s Track & Field.

Two Flames were among the more than 325 men to be named All-Academic Athletes in NCAA DII Men’s Track & Field. Caleb Eagleson (Youth Ministry) and Will Stone (Biochemistry) were the Lee men athletes to earn the honor.

To be named an NCAA Division II All-Academic Athlete, the student-athlete must carry a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have completed at least 24 semester hours through the end of the semester of competition. Transfer and graduate students are to include only grades earned at the current nominating institution. In addition, the student-athlete must have achieved an automatic or provisional qualifying mark (individual or relay event) for either the indoor or outdoor season.
