COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado State had five student-athletes named to the 2010 Division I women's all-academic track & field teams, the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced earlier this week.

CSU is represented on the list by female athletes Kendra Gerk, Kristen Hemphill, Kristen Kugler, Ellie Rastall and Sonni Russell. The Rams are returning distance runners Gerk and Rastall and heptathlete Kugler, while Russell and Hemphill graduated this past spring. Hemphill will continue to train with Rams distance coach Bryan Berryhill and work as a volunteer assistant coach with cross country this fall.

For the women, 37 individuals representing seven MWC institutions were named to the all-academic team. Nebraska led all institutions for the second straight year with 18 honorees while BYU finished second with 12 on the list. A total of 557 student-athletes representing 152 Division I institutions composed the women’s 2010 all-academic team, which is a record.

The USTFCCCA honors Division I individuals for their academic and athletic achievements during the indoor and outdoor track & field seasons. To qualify for the USTFCCCA all-academic track & field team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have met either the NCAA Division I indoor automatic or provisional qualifying standard or participated in the NCAA Division I outdoor championships (including preliminary rounds) in his or her respective event.
