TOWSON, Md. -- Sharon Ronoh of Lindsey Wilson was selected to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-America College Division Women's Cross Country/Track & Field Team, as chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The Capital One College Division Academic All-America Women's Cross Country/Track & Field team is comprised of student-athletes from NAIA, Canadian and two-year institutions.
Three 15-member teams were chosen for a first, second and third team. Ronoh is a second-team selection after posting a 3.34 GPA as a Nursing major.
To be eligible for Academic All-America consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at their current institution and be nominated by their sports information director.

Earlier in the year at the NAIA Cross County National Championship, Ronoh added another All-American honor with a top-10 finish. It was the first cross-county All-American for Lindsey Wilson since 2006 as Ronoh crossed the finish in 17 minutes and 57 seconds.
