Brague, Hay, and Jenkins Earn USTFCCCA All-Academic Accolades

Laurie Jenkins Springfield, Mass. - July 30, 2010 - Three members of the Springfield College women's track and field team were named to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division III All-Academic Track & Field team. Freshmen Colleen Brague and Laurie Jenkins were selected, while Nikki Hay added to her list of awards garnered this year.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 and have met either the NCAA Division III indoor or outdoor automatic or provisional qualifying standard. A total of 330 student-athletes representing 99 institutions compose the group.

Hay, who won the NCAA Indoor Triple Jump National Championship earlier in the year, was one of 10 individuals from across the country who won a national championship and earned the academic honor. Hay had a remarkable senior year as she took third in the long jump to go along with her title in the triple jump en route to being named the USTFCCCA Outstanding Women's Field Performer at NCAA Indoor Championships. In the outdoor championships, Hay took fifth in the long jump and triple jump, and anchored the 4x100 relay team as she earned All-America honors in each.

Jenkins joined Hay on the 4x100 relay team during the outdoor season that placed fifth nationally at the NCAA Championships. In her first season for the Pride, Brague provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championships in the javelin.
