Five members of the Angelo State women's track & field squad were honored on Thursday as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association (USTFCCCA) announced its 2008 Women's All-Academic Team.

ASU's sophomore Kris Crockett, sophomore Brittney Heath, freshman Sara Hooker, junior Ashley Painter and sophomore Chrystal Ruiz were among the 222 student-athletes honored representing 69 NCAA Division II institutions.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have met the NCAA D-II indoor or outdoor automatic or provisional qualifying standard in their respective event.

Painter and Hooker both represented the Rambelles at the national meet this past spring. Painter qualified in the 400-meter hurdles while Hooker was part of ASUs 4x100-meter relay squad. Crockett provisionally qualified in the long jump, Heath in the 1,500-meter run and Ruiz in the 400-meter hurdles.
