- A total of 15 student-athletes have been named to the 2012 Conference USA All-Academic Cross Country Teams, as selected by the league's sports information directors for the sport. The all-academic teams consist of student-athletes who have earned a 3.2 cumulative grade point average or better and are a key member on their team.
Five seniors, four juniors and six sophomores make up the two honorary lists. The men's all-academic team is comprised of eight honorees while the women's is made up of seven, instead of six, due to ties for the final spots.
On the women's team, senior Stephanie Ledgerwood of Southern Miss is the only repeat selection from a year ago. She placed third overall at the 2012 C-USA Championship with a personal-best time of 16:56.9, earning All-C-USA first team honors.
Joining Ledgerwood is teammate Jocelyn Lockhart who appeared on three C-USA Academic Medal lists and Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Rolls. Lockhart ran a personal-best time of 18:25.9 in the 5K at the C-USA Championship.
