SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The LMU men's and women's cross country teams placed a trio of runners on the 2013 West Coast Conference All-Academic First Teams while seven additional Lions were named to their respective Honorable Mention teams, the league office announced Thursday.

On the men's side, seniors Weston Strum (3.62 GPA, Accounting) and Kevin Joerger (3.95, Biochemistry) earned first team honors while fifth-year senior Sheree Shea (3.84 GPA, MA Educational Studies) was named to the women's first team. This marked the second first team award for Strum and third WCC All-Academic listing overall as he also earned honorable mention honors once. Joerger was an honorable mention selection last fall, as did Shea.

Making the men's honorable mention list this fall were Drew Dalton, Michael Duncan and Daniel Gibson. Rounding out the women's honorable mention team were Kelli Sugimoto, Melanie Joerger, Taylor Paschen and Evelyn Gonzalez.



At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered in the sport of men's and women's cross country, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, be a significant contributor to his team and participate in at least 50 percent of all contests, and have at least sophomore athletic and academic standing with at least one year in residence at the nominating institution.
