Darton Cross Country Squads Named Academic All-America Teams
February 25, 2010
Darton College’s cross country men’s and women’s regional championship squads have been named Academic All-America Teams by the NJCAA Cross Country Coaches Association.
The Darton College men's team earned a 3.45 GPA, placing them 10th nationally. The women's team produced a 3.29 to rank 18th.
The women's All-America Team members are: Catherine Westerfield (freshman), Nakora Mackey (freshman), Jade Evans (freshman), Randi Holtz (sophomore), and Whitney Blackburn (sophomore). The men's All-America Team (all freshmen) are: Adam Ross, Christopher Rockwell, Richard Hughes, Mehammed Gomez, and Matt Himel.
"This speaks volumes about the group of student-athletes I've been fortunate enough to work with this year," said Cross Country Coach David Mann. "Without a doubt this has been our young program's best season, and it's very gratifying to see these runners continue to be champions outside of our program and into their daily lives as Darton College students."
Although David Marley, now running at Columbus State University, earned Academic All-American honors while at Darton, this is the first time the award has been given to the team collectively since the Darton program started in 2007. This is the second time the women's team has received such an honor.For questions, comments or concerns regarding news items, or to find out how to announce campus events via Darton News, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement.
