The USTFCCCA All-Academic award honors those student-athletes who have succeeded both academically and athletically. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must carry a minimum 3.3 cumulative grade point average and must finish in the top 35 among the field at their respective NCAA regional meet.

Keller, who won the UMAC championships last month and finished eighth in the NCAA regional meet in Grinnell, Iowa, was UMM's first runner to qualify for the Division III national meet.
