Former Bradwell Institute track star and current University of Georgia senior heptathlon competitor Quintunya Chapman made the list Friday of U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association’s 2015 All-Academic honorees. Chapman was one of the 838 women honored from 207 different Division I schools.
According to the USTFCCCA’s website, to qualify for the list, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 and met certain athletic standards, such as:
• For the indoor season, a student-athlete must have finished the regular season ranked in the national top 96 in an individual event or ranked in the national top 48 (collective listing) in a relay event on the official list provided by TFRRS.org.
• For the outdoor season, a student-athlete must have participated in any round of the NCAA Division I Championships (including preliminary rounds).
Last month, Chapman placed third in the heptathlon at the NCAA National Championship Tournament in Eugene, Oregon.
