Oglethorpe cross country teams earn coaches' all-academic honors

The Oglethorpe University cross country teams received multiple academic awards from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) this week, as both teams were named all-academic squads, and senior Mateo Villa of the men's team earned individual all-academic honors. It marked the first such award of Villa's career.

Both the Petrel women's and men's teams garnered all-academic accolades from the USTFCCCA. The women's team accrued a 3.46 GPA over the course of the fall semester, while the men's team came in at 3.14.

To qualify for the award, a team had to earn at least a 3.1 GPA over the course of their semester of competition.

The Petrel women's team served as one of 212 Division III teams to earn the award, while the men's team joined 171 other men's Division III squads to earn the honor.
