Both the Iowa State men’s and women’s track and field teams were bestowed with the NCAA DI Track and Field Team Academic Awards.
Individually, nine Cyclones were named All-Academic Individuals. Honorees on the women’s team included three-time recipients Anne Frisbie, Kelly Naumann and Jasmine Staebler, two-timer Erinn Stenman-Fahey and first-time winners Karly Ackley, Larkin Chapman, Cailie Logue and Amanda Vestri. For the men’s team, Eric Fogltanz was recognized.
Frisbie, Logue and Vestri all received the honor for the cross country season as well back in February. Frisbie is now a five-time honoree, adding two cross country awards to her trio of track and field recognitions.
To be eligible for the team award, teams must have a cumulative team GPA of at least 3.0. To earn the individual award, student-athletes must have at least a cumulative GPA of 3.25, and either rank in the top-96 nationally in an event, or compete at any round of the NCAA Championships.
