         WILMINGTON, North Carolina - Just two months after having senior Wil Zahorodny named the Colonial Athletic Association's top scholar-athlete in cross country, the UNCW men have collected 2011 NCAA Division I All-Academic Team honors by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

         To achieve the USTFCCA's annual award, teams must attain a cumulative team grade point average of at least 3.00 and start at least five runners at the NCAA Regionals.

         Only two other Colonial Athletic Association schools - George Mason and Georgia State - joined UNCW on the list.

         "We're pleased that our men's team has received this honor once again," said assistant cross country/track and field coach Layne Schwier.  "Like the women, they continue to show that academics are a priority. Combined with Wil's award in the fall, our men have been rewarded for their hard work in the classroom."

          The Seahawks posted a 3.07 GPA for the year and were one of nine state schools on the list, joining Appalachian State, Davidson, Elon, High Point, N.C. State, UNC Charlotte, UNC Greensboro and Wake Forest.
