Flattmann, Morris Earn CoSIDA Academic All-District
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Razorback standouts on the track and in the classroom, Kaitlin Flattmann and Sandi Morris have been selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 6 First Team. In other recognition for the top-ranked Arkansas women, Logan Bishop has earned a spot on the 2015 SEC Track and Field Community Service Team.
Flattmann carries a 3.97 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) as a biology major and was Arkansas’ female nominee for the SEC’s H. Boyd McWhorter Scholarship. For her work in the classroom, she has three past selections to the SEC All-Academic Team and member of the Dean’s List since 2012. Flattmann ran a career-best 34:32.73 at 10,000 meters at the Stanford Invitational and finished third in the event at the 2012 conference meet. She was the 2011 SEC Freshman of the Year in cross country.
Morris posted a 3.92 cumulative GPA on her way to earning a degree in journalism. She was the 2015 NCAA indoor champion in the pole vault and is a three-time SEC champion in the event. Most recently at the SEC Outdoor Championships, Morris broke the collegiate record with a final clearance of 4.72m/15-5.75. She was the 2015 Co-SEC Field Athlete of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the indoor season. Morris is one of four Razorbacks qualified in the pole vault for the NCAA West Preliminary.
As first-team selections, Flattmann and Morris are now placed on the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. Among the criteria to be eligible for the Academic All-America program, a student-athlete must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 and have reached sophomore standing.
Bishop serves as a member of Arkansas’ Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and will be the vice president of the group in the 2015-16 academic year. Among her service efforts, she was involved in Christmas Shop with Razorback SAAC, the Big Brothers & Big Sisters scavenger hunt and Children’s Fun Run. In the classroom, Bishop owns a 3.22 GPA as a kinesiology major and was a member of the 2014 SEC Spring Academic Honor Roll.
The top-ranked Razorbacks return to competition May 28-30 with 24 qualifiers at the NCAA West Preliminary in Austin, Texas. The top-12 qualifiers in each event will then advance to the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Championships held June 10-13 at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.
