SH resident’s cross-country team earns all-academic status

By compiling a team grade-point-average of 3.22, the Whittier College women’s cross-country team, the Poets, earned Division III All-Academic status from the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Freshman Guadalupe Ulloa, a team member from Signal Hill, is majoring in child development and Spanish at Whittier College.
To qualify as a USTFCCCA All-Academic Cross Country Team, the team must have had a cumulative team GPA of 3.10 or better and have compiled a score (finished at least five runners) at their respective NCAA regional championships.
The Poets finished the 2010 season in third place at both the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the West Regional Championships. Seven runners continued on to Nationals in Waverly, Iowa. Less than 5 percent of NCAA DIII Women’s Cross Country runners advance all the way to the NCAA Championships.
