    Seniors Erica Capellino and Kira Soderstrom and juniors Natasha Strickland and Jenna Tong were named to the 2014 Pac-12 All-Academic Team as honorable mention selections, it was announced by Commissioner Larry Scott last week (Nov. 19).

    To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have matriculated at the current university for at least one season and have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.

    Soderstrom became a three-time All-Academic selection, while Capellino, Strickland and Tong were named for the second time. With six freshman and a transfer on the 2014 USC women's cross country roster and several runners missing significant time with injury, nearly every eligible Trojan was selected to the team.
