Hulleberg named scholar athlete of the year in D-III men's cross country

NEW ORLEANS – Haverford College's Anders Hulleberg has been named the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association's NCAA Division III Cross Country Men's Scholar Athlete of the Year as announced by the organization Tuesday afternoon.

Hulleberg, the 2010 NCAA D-III individual champion and All-America honoree, was joined on the USTFCCCA's all-academic list by five teammates from the Fords' national championship squad. All-Americans Eric Arnold, Lucas Fuentes and Chris Southwick also earned all-academic status along with Joseph Carpenter and Tim Schoch.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA all-academic cross country team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade-point average of 3.30 or higher through the most recent semester and placed in the top-35 at his NCAA regional championship. Each of Haverford's six honorees ran to all-region honors and went on to compete for the Fords at the national meet.

Led by Hulleberg, a senior, the Fords captured the 2010 NCAA crown for the College's first NCAA championship in any sport.

Tuesday's honor for Hulleberg adds to a lengthy list of other postseason honors which includes the Philadelphia Inquirer/Philadelphia Area Sports Information Association's men's cross country all-academic performer of the year as well as the USTFCCAA's and Centennial Conference's men's runner of the year awards.
