BOSTON - The America East Conference has announced its men’s cross country All-Academic Team and University of New Hampshire junior harrier and runner-up in the America East Championships junior co-captain Jordan Horowitz (Evanston, Ill.) was selected to the five member team on Tuesday.
    Horowitz cruised to a second place finish with a time of 24 minutes, 34 seconds to help lead the Wildcats to its fourth conference title in the past six seasons. He was also the only Wildcat to finish in the top ten.
    Featured on the men’s team is Boston’s Phil Shaw (Andover, Mass.), Maine’s Kirby Davis (Falmouth, Maine/Falmouth) and Josh Trevino (Rochester, N.H./Spaulding), and Stony Brook’s Shaun Krawitz (Auckland, New Zealand/Auckland University). All of these runners placed in the top 10 at the America East Championship and had GPAs of 3.0 or higher.
    The All-Academic squads are a product of the June 2005 Athletics Director meetings. Faculty representatives and athletics directors from each of the conference’s nine member institutions decided to honor some of the league’s top athletes that are also quality students.
The All-Academic Team has been selected based on the student-athlete’s academic and athletic accomplishments. Academic achievement for consideration requires student-athletes to have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 entering the season. Athletically, student-athletes are required to be a top 10-finisher at the America East Cross Country Championship meet. Freshmen are not eligible for the all-academic teams and grade-point averages are taken from the semester prior to the competing athletic season.
