HANOVER, N.H. - The US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced its list of programs to earn All-Academic Status this year Thursday morning, a list that included the Dartmouth men's track & field team.

For a program to be honored with this team-based distinction, the collective cumulative grade-point-average must be at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale at the most recent NCAA indoor and outdoor championships.

Brett Gilson and John Bleday were recognized earlier in the week by the USTFCCCA as members of the All-Academic Team for their individual achievements on the field and in the classroom this season.

The Big Green men were just one of 85 teams from across the nation in Division I to qualify for this scholarly honor based on its cumulative GPAs of 3.27 (winter) and 3.31 (spring) this year, the third-best mark in the Ivy League this season.
