NORFOLK, VA (Feb. 17) – The Florida A&M Indoor Track & Field team placed 21 athletes on the MEAC All-Academic team. Led by multiple time winner Judith Kibii, FAMU’s athletes were honored by MEAC Commissioner Dennis Thomas, Ph.D.
FAMU Director of Track & Field, Darlene Moore Ed.D., is pleased with the honor, but expects more on the team in her first full year taking over both track programs. “I am an educator at heart. Success in academics is imperitive for athletes to remain on my team. I stress to them that they can’t concentrate of performing well on the field if they aren’t performing well in the classroom,” Moore said.
MEAC sophomore, junior and senior student-athletes with a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average, as well as transfer student-athletes who have been in residence at the institution for at least one year, are eligible for All-Academic accolades. “I want to felicitate our track & field student-athletes, who maintained a 3.0 or better grade point average during the 2016-17 academic year,” said MEAC Commissioner Dennis E. Thomas. “In addition to acknowledging the accomplishments of these student-athletes, I would also like to thank the institutional and athletic academic support staffs, faculty and coaches for their support in the success of their student-athletes.”
