SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Ten Loyola Marymount Cross Country runners received 2017 West Coast Conference All-Academic accolades following the season. Junior Jack Polerecky and redshirt senior Danielle Shanahan were named to the men’s and women’s All-Academic teams, respectively. Polerecky, a biochemistry major with a 3.72 GPA, was a consistent top-finisher for the men’s team this season, most recently running a career-best 30:40.9 in the men’s 10K race at the NCAA West Regionals to finish 50th overall.
Shanahan is currently a grad student earning a master’s degree in Educational Studies and has a 3.45 GPA. Shanahan, the top runner on the women’s team and one of LMU’s most decorated athletes all-time, most recently represented LMU at the NCAA National Cross Country Championships in Louisville, Ky. This marked her second cross country appearance at nationals (third overall including track and field), and she received her highest finish placing 43rd overall with a time of 20:14.82 on the women’s 6K course.
At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to their team.
The following Loyola Marymount Cross Country runners received 2017 WCC All-Academic Honorable Mention: Branden Estrada, Harry Loasby, Jordan McLennan, Koby Pederson, Joey Rodgers, Emily Hubert, Maddi Vorgitch and Hannah Wohlenberg.
