NEW ORLEANS, La. – Announced in late July, four members of the 2014 Cal Lutheran women’s track and field team were honored by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) for accomplishments in the classroom and competition settings.

Among the group of 416 women from 126 institutions across the country, CLU was represented by Allie Hadley, Amanda Hamilton, Lauren Rohach and Kendall Sauter who all met the requirements of having competed at the Division III Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Championships or finishing the regular season ranked among the Top-35 in the nation in an individual event or ranked in the Top-25 for a relay on the official NCAA POP list provided to the TFRRS.org while maintaining a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.30 or higher.

The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) earned 10 selections from five different institutions with the four from CLU leading the way. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and La Verne each had a pair honored and Pomona-Pitzer and Redlands had one selection apiece.

The UW-La Crosse team earned 14 honorees to lead all women’s teams.  

For the second consecutive year Christy Cazzola from UW-Oshkosh was named both the Indoor and Outdoor Scholar Athlete of the Year, marking the first time since the inception of the award in 2007 that someone won it back-to-back years for two straight seasons, totaling four awards. Joining Cazzola as Indoor and Outdoor Scholar Athletes of the Year, respectively, were Bria Halama (UW-LaCrosse) and Alexis Appezzato (Ramapo).
