NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana -- Earlier this week, on Monday, seniors Wes Fritz and Kenny Beucler were named to the USTFCCCA All-Academic team as representatives for the Heidelberg University men's track and field team. The selections cap off an incredible campaign for both athletes.
In order to be eligible for the individual award, student-athletes must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.30 and must have met at least one of the following athletic standards: competed in an NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championship, finished the regular season ranked in the top-50 in an individual event or ranked in the national top-35 in a relay event on the official NCAA Descending Order List.
Fritz participated in the Indoor National Championships, finishing ninth in the high jump, while Beucler earned All-American honors in the 400m Hurdles of the Outdoor National Championships.
Also during the release of the individual USTFCCCA Academic honors, the Heidelberg women's track and field team was tabbed as an All-Academic team after posting a combined GPA of 3.14. The selection marked the seventh straight year the women took home the team academic award.
