NEW ORLEANS, La. - A combined cumulative GPA surpassing 3.0 has earned Goucher's women's track and field program recognition from the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

A total of 92 women's track and field programs from Division III institutions throughout the nation were designated a 2008 All-Academic Team today by the USTFCCCA. The honor goes to programs in which the entire active roster attains a combined GPA of at least 3.0. At the conclusion of the 2007-08 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 3.180.

This is the fifth 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."
