USTFCCCA Team Release | USTFCCCA Individual Release

NEW ORLEANS -- Following another historic season that ended with a trip to the NCAA Championships, the Ole Miss women's cross country team was awarded for its work in the classroom with national team and individual All-Academic honors, announced today by the USTFCCCA.

The Rebel women earned the All-Academic team distinction for the eighth season in a row, recording a 3.58 cumulative GPA. A total of 423 teams across both men's and women's competition earned the distinction, 228 of which were women's teams. Among other SEC schools, Ole Miss ranks near the top in fifth overall with its 3.58 GPA.

Ole Miss earned its second berth to the national meet in as many years after winning its first-ever South Region women's title. Helping secure that regional title was five All-Region finishers in the top-25 -- four of whom earned the individual USTFCCCA honor, which necessitates a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and either a top-25 regional finish or an All-American finish at the national meet.

Emily Bean, Anna Braswell, Hannah Christen and Clio Ozanne-Jaques earned the honor for the Rebel women, the most women's individual honorees in a single year in school history and the second-most among SEC schools this season (trailing only six by Arkansas).

Braswell holds the highest regional finish among the All-Academic honorees in 12th, followed by Christen in 13th, Bean in 14th and Ozanne-Jaques in 17th.
