            NEW ORLEANS - Gonzaga University's men's cross country team is one of 147 institutions to earn 2011 Division I All-Academic Cross Country honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCA).

            The Bulldog women also earned the same honor earlier this month.

            In order to be nominated, a school must have started at least five runners in their NCAA Division I Regional Cross Country Meet and had a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.

            Gonzaga, one of six West Coast Conference teams to be recognized, has a 3.20 cumulative GPA.

            "We want to perform well in the classroom and on the field of competition," Bulldog head coach Pat Tyson said. "And we want to represent the community well. I think we do well in all three but are always striving to get better in all areas."

            The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga reported the nation's highest cumulative team GPA of 3.81.

           The Badgers of the University of Wisconsin are the USTFCCCA NCAA Division I Men's Scholar Team of the Year for 2011. Wisconsin won its first NCAA Cross Country Championship title since 2005 this past fall.

            Scholar Teams of the year are determined from among those who earned All-Academic status and placed highest as a team at the most recent NCAA Championships.
