Albany, which won both the men’s and women’s titles at the 2007 America East Outdoor Track & Field Championship, is represented by a league-best five women’s all-academic team selections and four on the men’s side. All of the all-academic honorees were medalists at this year’s championship.

Dana Hastie from Stony Brook was named to the squad, while Corinne DiPietro, Carmen Lagala, Heather Mitchell, Lindsey Carfagna and Clayton Curtis of Vermont round out the all-academic teams.

Each All-Academic Team has been selected based on the student-athlete’s academic and athletic accomplishments. Academic achievement for consideration requires student-athletes to have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 entering the season. Athletic accomplishment standards vary between team sports and individual sports. For track & field, student-athletes are required to be a top-three finisher at the conference championship meet. Team size for individual sports is determined by the number of all-conference honorees who possess the minimum academic requirement. Freshman are not eligable for the All-Academic Team.
