Eleven Cardinal track athletes earned spots on the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic Team, while junior Amaechi Morton was named the Outdoor Track Scholar-Athlete of the Year for Division I.
Morton, a four-time All-American, holds Stanford records in both the 400 meters and 400-meter hurdles. He finished second in the latter race at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in June with a season-best time of 49.08, and is ranked 18th in the world in the event.
Among the other Cardinal members are juniors Chris Derrick and Benjamin Johnson and senior Elliot Heath, all three-time selections. Derrick won a similar Scholar-Athlete of the Year award for the cross country season.
