NEW ORLEANS - Both the Hood College men's and women's track and field programs were named United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Track & Field All-Academic Teams.
The Blazer men were one of just three Middle Atlantic Conference programs to receive the award. Hood's women were joined by seven other MAC institutions.
In total, there were 185 women's teams and 106 men's teams honored by the association as all-academic teams for their success in the classroom and in competition. A team must have at least a 3.10 cumulative team grade-point average (GPA).
