(NEW ORLEANS) – A day after both men's and women's track teams earned All-Academic Team honors by the USTFCCCA, nine Walsh student-athletes individual All-Academic honors from the same organization. The women provided a strong presence as seven were listed, while two men also earned accolades.
Kaitlyn Barber, Sarah Berger, Meredith Fennell, Andra Lehotay, Tori Reeves, Jetaiya Smith, and Kendra Zbinovec comprised of the women's group. Mark Hadley and James Miller were named on the men's side.
Most of the group came from the junior class with four representatives. Sophomores provided three of the selection with both men included. Zbinovec was the lone senior while Lehotay was the solo freshman.
Last season eight student-athletes were named. Barber, Berger, Fennell, Smith, and Zbinovec are all repeat winners for the women. Miller is now a double-winner for the men. Barber and Berger have now been named three consecutive years.
