The St. Vincent College women's cross country team was honored by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association as an Academic Team of the Year.
The Bearcats were among seven Presidents' Athletic Conference schools and 197 in NCAA Division III to earn the award.
Team members registered a cumulative grade-point average of 3.44.
Johns Hopkins was named the National Scholar Team of the Year.
St. Vincent settled for a 3-3 record during a spring break trip to Florida. The Bearcats were unable to play the final game of the trip, because their opponent, Brandeis, was unable to travel through the snow.
Despite sunshine and temperatures in the high 70s in Winter Haven, Fla., Massachusetts-based Brandeis was grounded last week by a snowstorm in Boston.
Directors at the Russ Matt Tournament were unable to find a replacement game for St. Vincent, whose victories came against St. John Fisher, Beloit and Clark.
Junior Ally Vrcek of St. Vincent was named Presidents' Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week after winning both games for the Bearcats to improve to 3-0 overall. Vrcek pitched a total of 13 innings, allowing three earned runs and striking out 17.
The women's team at St. Vincent made a brief spring break trip to North Carolina and improved its record to 2-0 with a 16-8 victory at Meredith after overcoming an early 4-1 deficit. Nora Posival led St. Vincent with eight points on three goals and five assists. Kaley Burkardt added seven points on three goals and four assists, and Megan Fisher recorded five goals.
