Irving, Texas - Four Rice Owl cross country student-athletes were named to the 2010 Conference USA All-Academic Cross Country Teams, as selected by the league's sports information contacts for cross country. The all-academic team consists of student-athletes who have earned a 3.2 cumulative grade point average or better and are a starter or key reserve on their team. Four seniors, seven juniors and four sophomores make up the two honorary teams.
Rice led the way on the men's side, as juniors Matt Carey and Gabe Cuadra earned their second-consecutive All-Academic honors. Carey brings a 4.271 GPA to the team as a chemistry (pre-med) and mathematical economic analysis double-major. A two-time C-USA Commissioner's Academic Medal recipient, he has been named to the Rice University President's Honor Roll every semester as an Owl. Carey finished 20th at the C-USA Cross Country Championships to earn All-C-USA Third Team honors. Cuadra holds a 3.70 mark as a mathematical economic analysis major and is a two-time member of the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll. He ran a 24:31 at the C-USA Championships, finishing All-C-USA Second Team.
Two Rice seniors Allison Pye and Britany Williams were selected to the C-USA All-Academic Women's Cross Country Team. Pye is a 3.960 double-major in kinesiology and policy studies and was selected as the 2009 Rice Scholar Athlete of the Year. She ran in all seven meets for the Owls this season, taking two top-10 finishes. Pye won the 2010 NCAA South Central Regional and was named as the Region's Athlete of the Year.
Williams owns a 3.740 mark as a sports management and psychology major, while also pursuing a minor in business. A two-time Arthur Ashe Sports Scholar Award recipient, she placed eighth at the NCAA South Central Region.
