NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Yale women's cross country team was selected as one of the 205 Division I All-Academic programs across the country on Monday. In order to be considered, a team must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 and have started at least five runners at its regional NCAA regional championship. Each Ivy League school except Princeton was selected. The Bulldogs combined for a 3.51 average, the highest of any Ancient Eight competitor.
The team's status as All-Academic was no doubt facilitated by sophomore Liana Epstein, who was named to the individual Division I All-Academic team on Friday.
