WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — University of Colorado senior Rachel Viger has once again been selected to the Pac-12 Cross Country All-Academic First Team, her third straight appearance, as announced on Wednesday.

Viger’s appearance on the team is no surprise as she carries an impressive 4.00 GPA after six semesters at CU. The Fort Collins, Colo. native is majoring in chemical engineering and is on track to graduate this May.

On the men’s side, junior Morgan Pearson (Morristown, N.J.) was selected to the Pac-12 All-Academic Second Team. He is majoring in economics and has recorded a cumulative 3.32 GPA.

A total of seven other Buffs were named to the honorable mention team. Maddie Alm, Courtney Bouchet, Jenny DeSouchet, Catrina McAlister, Jana Stolting, Liz Tremblay and Carrie Verdon were honored for their academic performances this season.

To be eligible for the honor, a student-athlete needs to have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor to the team.

Colorado’s third-ranked men and fifth-ranked women’s teams will be in Terre Haute, Ind. for the 2013 NCAA Championships on Saturday, November 23, at La Vern Gibson Cross Country Course. The men’s 10k race will start at 10 a.m. MT and the women’s 6k race will follow. The races will be streamed live at NCAA.com.
