DE PERE - St. Norbert College juniors Kristina Herman and Graceanne Tarsa have been named to the first team of the 2018 NCAA Division III Academic All-District VI women's track and field/cross country team as sponsored by Google Cloud and the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Herman, a Black Creek native and a Seymour High School graduate, holds a 3.98 grade point average in biochemistry. Herman finished second in the shot put and sixth in the discus at the Midwest Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championship earlier this month. She also finished fourth in the shot put this season at the MWC Indoor Track and Field Championship in February. Overall, Herman has four MWC event championships.

Tarsa, a Traverse City, Mich., native and a Traverse City Central High School graduate, holds a 4.00 grade point average while majoring in biology and mathematics. Tarsa won the pole vault and was part of the champion distance medley relay at the MWC Indoor Track and Field Championship in February. She also won the pole vault at the MWC Outdoor championship this month and was fifth in the 1,500-meter run. This past fall, Tarsa placed sixth overall at the MWC Cross Country Championship and earned the MWC Elite 20 Award at the event.

St. Norbert women's track and field and cross country swept the three MWC championships in 2017-18, becoming the first school in conference history to win those three titles in one year for two consecutive years.

As first-team All-District selections, Herman and Tarsa advance to the ballot for Academic All-America consideration. The Academic All-America Team is scheduled to be announced June 19.

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.
