NEW ORLEANS – Sophomore Isaac Wilson (Tylersburg, Pa./North Clarion) has earned United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division III All-Academic honors.
To be eligible for this distinction, individuals must have a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or higher and have finished in the top 25 percent of their respective regional championship meet.
"We are really proud of our group for these awards," head coach Joe Eby said. "It's exciting to see their hard work on the course and in the classroom pay off."
Wilson is an exercise science major who carries a 3.79 GPA. He had a stellar sophomore year, winning his first individual title at the Hornet Harrier Invitational, hosted by Shenandoah (Va.) University, and his first Ohio Athletic Conference Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week honor. Wilson earned All-Ohio honors with a 14th place finish at the 2017 Division III All-Ohio Championships. He also was named an Academic All-OAC selection for the first time in his career this fall.
A current member of the BW track and field team, Wilson and the rest of the Yellow Jackets are back in action on Saturday, February 17, at the Raider Tune Up, hosted by the University of Mount Union.
