NEW ORLEANS - The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced the All-Academic Team honors for the 2016-17 season and both the Bronco men's and women's track and field teams received the honor. In order to qualify as an All-Academic Team, a program must possess a cumulative team GPA of 3.0 or better.
The women's team led the way with a 3.51 team cumulative GPA and the men qualified with a 3.18. The women ranked third among Mountain West teams while the men were fourth.
"We're extremely proud of how our program performed in the classroom this past year," head coach Corey Ihmels said. "We take our academics very seriously, and we're happy to be recognized by the USTFCCCA."
The Boise State women also stood out nationally, as they tied for 26th in the country out of the 218 Division I teams that were recognized.
Both teams earned the same honor last year with the women logging a 3.35 and the men a 3.15.
