Gass and Owens Earn National Academic Honors

Seniors Matthew Gass and Armond Owens were honored this week for academic accomplishment with selection to the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic Team as announced on the association website.

In order to be selected to the national honor, an athlete must have compiled at least a 3.30 grade point average (4.0 scale) and either competed at the NCAA Division III National Championship meet or finished among the top 50 for an individual event in the final national rankings.

Gass was ranked 24th in the country in the 200-meter dash during the indoor season and Owens was tied for 39th in the nation in the 60-meter dash for the River Hawks.
