DE PERE - St. Norbert College seniors Kristina Herman and Graceanne Tarsa have been selected for the second consecutive year to the 2019 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 registered the Midwest Conference outdoor title in the shot put earlier this month at Schneider Stadium, her fifth overall MWC indoor or outdoor championship. She also has three career MWC runner-up finishes.

Tarsa, a Traverse City, Mich., native and a Traverse City Central High School graduate, holds a 3.96 grade point average while majoring in biology and mathematics. Tarsa finished 10th in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championship this past Saturday. Named the outstanding track performer at the 2019 MWC Indoor and Outdoor championships, Tarsa won the 1,500-meter run, 3,000-meter steeplechase and pole vault at this year's outdoor meet while also claiming titles in the 800-meter and 1-mile run at this season's indoor championship. Tarsa also won MWC women's cross country individual championship this past October. Overall, Tarsa has won 10 MWC championships - five outdoor, four indoor and one cross country.

St. Norbert women's track and field and cross country swept the three MWC championships in 2017, 2018 and 2019, becoming the first school in conference history to win those three titles in one year for three 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 25.

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.
