IRVING – Senior James Coleman and sophomore Susannah Lynch were named to the 2016 Conference USA InTouch Credit Union men’s and women’s cross country all-academic teams.

“We are excited to have our top runners earn all-academic honors this season,” cross country coach Stefanie Slekis said. “We strive to focus on doing well academically along with competing hard in our meets. I am really proud to continue to have our student-athletes be honored by the conference.”
