SALT LAKE CITY - Seven student-athletes from the University of Utah women's cross country team earned All-Academic Team accolade from the Pac-12 Conference on Wednesday. Seniors Alyssa Abbott and Alexis Davis were named to the Pac-12 All-Academic Second Team.

"We are all extremely proud of these young women who work so hard to perform at a high level in everything they do," Utah head coach Kyle Kepler said. "Being part of the first ever Pac-12 All-Academic Team is a well deserved honor for them and our program."
