ORANGE, Calif. – Both men's and women's cross country teams earned U.S Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic accolades for their work in and out of the classroom. Freshman Arabella Reece was recognized individually for her work as a Communication Studies major.

Reece was the first women's cross country student-athlete in program history to reach NCAA Division III Nationals in the 2018 season and is now the first women's cross country student-athlete to earn a USTFCCCA All-Academic individual award.

The entire women's program earned the team All-Academic award after posting a 3.60 GPA. The men's side also earned All-Academic recognition after posting a team 3.42 GPA.
