Gator senior Agata Strausa picked up USTFCCCA XC All-Academic honors Friday.

NEW ORLEANS, La. -- Florida senior distance runner Agata Strausa garnered USTFCCCA Division I All-Academic honors, announced Friday by the organization, adding yet another honor to her resume as a Gator following the 2013 cross country season when Strausa picked up All-America honors at the NCAA Championships.


Strausa became UFs first cross country All-American since 2009 in November, racing in her second-ever Cross Country NCAA Championship. Strausa clocked a 33rd-place finish (20:42.1) in the field of 253 athletes to cap off her senior cross country season on a high note.


The USTFCCCA All-Academic honor is the second for Strausa, who was selected in the spring of 2013 for her contributions as a member of UFs track & field squad. She was additionally named to the 2012-13 SEC Academic Honor Roll.


Strausa was one of 129 women in Division I who earned USTFCCCA All-Academic honors for the 2013 cross country season. Honorees must have compiled a cumulative GPA or 3.25 or greater and must have finished as an All-American or among the 15 finishers (or 10 percent) in their regional meet. The 129 USTFCCCA All-Academic women hail from 78 different institutions and 21 different conferences.


In the midst of the 2014 indoor season, Strausa and the distance Gators will compete Feb. 14-15 at the Husky Classic in Seattle. The 2014 SEC Indoor Championships will take place Feb. 27-March 1 in College Station, Texas.
