NEW ORLEANS, La. – Because of a combined cumulative GPA surpassing 3.0, Goucher's women's track and field program has been designated a 2009 All-Academic Team by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

A total of 100 women's track and field programs from Division III institutions throughout the nation were recognized today by the USTFCCCA. The honor of being an All-Academic Team goes to programs in which the entire active roster attains a combined GPA of at least 3.0. At the conclusion of the 2008-09 academic year, the student-athletes who made up head coach John Caslin's women's track and field roster were carrying a combined GPA of 3.42.

This is the sixth consecutive year in which Caslin's women qualified for the All-Academic Team award from the USTFCCCA.

"It's quite an honor to be one of only two schools in the Landmark Conference to be recognized by the track and field coaches for outstanding academic achievement," commented Geoff Miller, Goucher's athletic director. "Under Coach Caslin, our track and cross country programs have achieved a tremendous amount of academic success over the years."
