DE PERE - St. Norbert College juniors Emily Schudrowitz and Kelsey Timm have been named to the Capitol One Academic All-America track and field/cross country second team, presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). It is the first Academic All-America honor for both.

Schudrowitz, a Wauwatosa native and a graduate of Wauwatosa East High School, holds a 3.91 grade point average while majoring in international business and Spanish. Schudrowitz finished third at the NCAA Division III outdoor 800-meter run, her best-ever national outdoor finish. She also won the 2010 Division III indoor 800-meter national championship. Schudrowitz has won 15 Midwest Conference championships and owns eight St. Norbert and four Midwest Conference records.

Timm, an Oconomowoc native and a graduate of Lake Country Lutheran High School, holds a 4.00 grade point average while majoring in psychology and history. Timm was the 10,000-meter champion and 3,000-meter steeplechase runner-up at the 2011 Midwest Conference Outdoor Championship. She also placed ninth as a freshman and junior at the Midwest Conference Cross Country Championship.

The honors are the fifth and sixth Academic All-America honors for St. Norbert track and field. In addition to these two selections, also honored were Kevin Lannon (1997 - second team), Jill Nelson (1990 - second team; 1991 - first team) and Laura Salm (1993 - first team).

It marks the 48th time among 37 recipients a St. Norbert student-athlete has received Academic All-America mention. St. Norbert's 48 Academic All-Americans are the most among Midwest Conference member schools, and the Green Knights had five of the league's seven selections in the 2010-11 academic year.

To be eligible for national or regional selection, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 on a scale of 4.0, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his current institution and be nominated by his sports information director. The Academic All-America team is selected after All-District teams are picked from eight geographic regions nationally.
