DENTON, Texas - Mean Green men's cross country was awarded the Team Academic Award by the Sun Belt Conference for its overall GPA during the 2010-11 season.
The team collected a 3.29 overall GPA during the competition season, tops in the conference for the second straight year.
"I'm proud of the guys for winning this award again," said cross country coach Sam Burroughs. "It shows that they are not only dedicated to performing well on the course, but off of it as well."
