NEW ORLEANS, La. – Denison women's track and field has received multiple all-academic honors by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association for their efforts in the classroom during the 2017-18 indoor and outdoor seasons. Senior Hannah Hall was named an All-Academic individual for the third-straight year, while the women's track and field program was recognized as an All-Academic team during this past season. To qualify for USTFCCCA All-Academic honors as an individual, student-athletes must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.30 and must have either competed in the NCAA Indoor or Outdoor Championship or finished the regular season ranked in the national top-50 in an individual event or be ranked in the national top-35 in a relay event.
Hall capped off her senior campaign with a trip to the 2018 NCAA Division III Women's Track & Field Championship in La Crosse, Wisconsin where she placed 13th overall in the women's high jump event with a height of 5'5" (1.65 meters).
This marked Hall's third consecutive top-15 finish at the national outdoor meet and her fourth trip to nationals overall. In 2017, the New Richmond, Ohio native earned All-American status in the high jump with a fourth-place finish at the 2017 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championship with a height of 5'7.75". She also placed 10th overall at the Outdoor Championship in 2016.
In total, Hall finished as a two-time NCAC champion in the high jump and was a nine-time all-conference performer. Following her four years in Granville, Hall recently graduated from Denison with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry.
As a team, the program compiled a 3.33 grade-point average for the year while finishing sixth overall at the 2018 NCAC Outdoor Championship in Allegheny, Pa and in a tie for sixth at the Indoor Championship in Crawfordsville, Ind.
