LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming track and field team had four Cowgirls named to the 2009 Division I All-Academic Track & Field Team, announced by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), earlier this week.

Three UW juniors were named to the list: Erica Anderson, Emily Higgins and Johnna Jeffries, while freshman Lindsey Simmons also made the cut.

The USTFCCCA honors Division I individuals for their academic and athletic achievements during the indoor and outdoor track & field seasons. To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track & Field Team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have met either the NCAA Division I Indoor automatic or provisional qualifying standard or the NCAA Division I Outdoor regional or national qualifying standard in their respective event.
