FRISCO — Sophomore Katie Bragg was named to the 29-member Southland Conference Women's Cross Country and Track & Field All-Academic Team, the league office announced on Wednesday.

Bragg, who maintains a 3.34 GPA in interdisciplinary studies, earned an automatic berth on the squad after winning UTSA"s first-ever hammer championship at last month's Southland Outdoor in Natchitoches, La. The Peachtree City, Ga., native also set a new school record in the hammer (178-1/54.28m) at April's Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.

Those performances came on the heels of a third-place effort in the weight throw at February's Southland Indoor in Norman, Oka. The Roadrunners record-holder in the event (58-6/17.13m), she was a member of UTSA's Dean's List (3.75 GPA) this past spring.

The 2011 Southland Cross Country and Track & Field All-Academic Teams are comprised of student-athletes that competed in cross country, indoor track & field and/or outdoor track & field. Student-athletes earn automatic qualification onto the squad if they maintain a GPA of 3.0 in addition to earning either first-team all-conference honors in any of the three seasons and/or being a CoSIDA/Captial One Academic All-District VI selection.

The team is voted on by the head coaches, sports information directors and academic/compliance administrators from each Southland university. Student-athletes must possess a 3.0 cumulative GPA, have completed one full academic year at the nominating institution and participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s competition to qualify for the all-academic squad.
