Fast Learners: Three Tri-C XC Runners Honored for Academics
Team finished with 14th-highest GPA in nation during fall semester
Three members of the women’s cross country team at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) earned Academic All-American honors from the NJCAA Cross Country Coaches Association for fall semester.
The classroom standouts included Niki Bartosova of Brook Park, Hannah Heath of Sullivan and Sierra Taylor of Conneaut. All are freshmen. Heath is studying physical therapy at Tri-C, while Bartosova and Taylor are working toward Associate of Arts degrees.
As a team, the Triceratops posted a 3.511 GPA — the 14th highest in the nation out of more than 200 colleges with cross country programs.
“This year’s team built on Tri-C’s tradition of excellence both in the classroom and in competition,” head coach Don Cox said. “Our student-athletes put in the work to succeed, and it shows in everything they do.”
