Seton Hill University senior Meagen Carter was named to the 2015-16 CoSIDA Academic All-District 2 ™ Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Team for Division II athletics on Thursday afternoon.
Carter, a chemistry major, has maintained a nearly perfect 3.96 grade-point average through her collegiate academic career.
The Academic All-District™ teams, as nominated and voted on by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The purpose of the program is to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Carter, a Shaler graduate, was one of 10 individuals honored for District 2 – which includes all athletes in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), Mountain East Conference (MEC) and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).
This season on the track, Carter finished fourth at the PSAC Championships in the 1500 meter run, setting a new Seton Hill record in the process in a time of 4:39.18. During the indoor season, Carter was sixth in the 1 mile run.
In cross country, Meagen earned her second straight All Region honor with an eighth place finish at the Atlantic Regional. Carter ran the fastest 6K time in Seton Hill history for the eighth place finish. She finished the 6K course in a time of 21:13.2. During her junior season, Carter was 9th at the PSAC Championships and 17th in the Atlantic Regional.
Meagen is also a three time USTFCCCA CC All Academic Team selection.
The 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-America ® Teams, for which Carter is eligible, will be announced Thursday, June 23.
