CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—Six members of the Virginia men’s and women’s cross country teams were named to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Cross Country All-Academic Team, the organization announced Friday (Feb. 19).

In addition, both the Cavalier men and women were announced as USTFCCCA Cross Country All-Academic Teams.

All six Cavaliers were named to the All-ACC Cross Country Academic Team this season. Boyd, Lake, Mulhern and Weaverling were all named to the All-ACC and All-Southeast Region teams, while Madden and Rebholz were recognized on the All-Southeast Region squads.

The Virginia women won their first ACC Championship since 1982, were NCAA Southeast Regional champions and had the highest cumulative GPA among Virginia women's teams during the Fall 2015 semester.
