INDIANOPOLIS, Ind. - The University of New Hampshire women’s cross country team was selected to the NCAA Division 1 All-Academic Team as announced on Tuesday.
    The All-Academic Board of the National Collegiate Division 1 Women’s Cross Country Coaches Association honors and appraises the academic and athletic performance of collegiate cross country teams throughout the United States for their scholarly achievements throughout the academic year.
      As a team, the Wildcats finished second overall at the America East Championships, while posting an 11th place effort at the NCAA Northeast Regionals back in November.
    Junior harrier Cathy Parker (Westford, Mass.) was the lone Wildcat to achieve an individual honor after a season in which Parker had arguably the most successful season ever recorded by a UNH runner. Parker, a nursing major, placed 111th overall at the NCAA Division 1 Women’s Cross Country Championships. She was the fourth Wildcat in the past decade to qualify for nationals and the first female runner to garner such a prestigious accomplishment. She was also a member of the America East All-Academic Team along with teammate Emily Mareb (Great Barrington, Mass.) as both runners finished in the top-10 at the America East Championship and posted GPAs of 3.60 or better.
