Academic awards for Dambacher, teammates

Fredonia sprinter Anna Dambacher has been named to the All-Academic Track & Field Team by the national coaches’ association. The entire Blue Devil women’s track and field team also earned national honors.

A junior-to-be at Fredonia, Dambacher participated in the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field championship meet following a indoor and outdoor campaign during which she set several team records. She was named 2014 SUNYAC Outstanding Female Track Athlete in May after winning the 100-meter title and finishing second in the 200 at the outdoor championship meet.

In addition to her success in the sprints, Dambacher carries a 3.72 cumulative grade-point average in Graphic Design, which surpasses the All-Academic Team criteria – a GPA of 3.30 or higher. All-Academic Team members must also have competed in an NCAA meet or earned a high national ranking – top 35 in an individual event, or top 25 in a relay. Including Dambacher, seven women from the SUNYAC were cited.

Meanwhile, the Fredonia women’s team was named to the All-Academic Team honor roll for attaining a combined cumulative GPA of 3.34. The Blue Devils’ spring GPA of 3.46 included 29 of 33 women with a 3.00 or higher, including 4.00’s by Anna Hourihan and Becca List.
