Steeplechase Detroit Mercy Men's Titan

The University of Detroit Mercy men's and women's track and field programs extended their long history of classroom excellence as both squads earned the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic Team honor for the 15th and 16th consecutive year, respectively.

In order to be considered an All-Academic Track & Field Team, a program must record a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or better.

The Titan men's track and field team recorded a 3.23 GPA during the 2016-17 season and was one of 142 men's teams, including five from the Horizon League, to receive the All-Academic accolade.

In fact, the Titans led all 2016-17 Horizon League track programs in team GPA.

The Detroit Mercy women's track and field team posted a 3.36 GPA during the season, one of 218 Division I teams and five from the Horizon League to make the prestigious awards mark.

The Titans 3.36 GPA ranked second overall in the conference, just behind NKU's 3.39.

Go Titans!
