Men's XC Earns BIG EAST Team Academic Excellence Award

July 19, 2017

NEW YORK - The Marquette University men's cross country team has earned the BIG EAST Conference Team Academic Excellence award for the 2016-17 season as announced by the league office on Wednesday.

The men's cross country team earned the honor after compiling the league's highest collective grade-point average (3.499) for the 2016-17 academic year. They were one of 22 teams recognized by the BIG EAST and the lone program from Marquette this year.

Under the direction of Mike Nelson, who enters his 11th season at the helm, Marquette men's and women's cross country teams have been recognized annually for their academic achievements by not only the BIG EAST, but nationally as well. 

The winners of this award were chosen based on the 2016-17 grade-point average of each student-athlete who appeared on an institution's roster as of the last contest of the championship segment in each conference-sponsored sport.
