NEW ORLEANS—The Lake Erie College women's track and field team was recognized by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) as an All-Academic Team for their performance in the classroom over the course of the 2015-16 seasons.
The team achieved a cumulative team GPA of 3.32.
"We are very proud the effort our women have been putting into their academic careers, as well as athletically," said Storm Head Coach Grant Lofdahl. "For our entire team to average a 3.32 GPA is excellent, but we're still not satisfied and I believe that number will go even higher in 2017."
Individually, Nadia Lee (Tucker, Ga./Tucker) and Danielle Corbin (Brooklyn, N.Y./Walnut Grove (Ga.)) were named to the USTFCCA All-Academic Team. To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have reached a provisional or automatic qualifying standard for the NCAA Championship in either the indoor or outdoor seasons.
"Nadia Lee and Danielle Corbin are two of our team leaders on the track, and obviously in the classroom," continued Lofdahl. "They have accomplished a lot in three years at Lake Erie, and I'm very excited to see what they can accomplish as seniors this year. Both of these young ladies are the epitome of what a true student-athlete should be."
Corbin had a season-best long jump of 5.71 meters at the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Outdoor Championships to finish second in the event. Lee had a season-best triple jump of 12.08 meters at the GLIAC Outdoor Championships as well to also finish second.
