Women's Team Garners All-Academic Honors Along with Throwers Brown and Killen
July 10, 2006
This was Brown's second academic award after being named to the 2006 CoSIDA Academic All-District first team District VI squad.
Brown opened the 2006 outdoor season at the Dr. Pepper Invitational with a first-place finish and shattered his own personal-best mark. His toss of 222-05 (67.79m) rewrote the school record book and established a new Mountain West Conference all-time mark.
For his efforts, he was named the MWC Player of the Week on March 28. He was also featured in March on the WB-33 television station as its Student-Athlete of the Week for his academic and athletic achievements.
The Flyin Frogs' women's team posted a GPA of 3.020, putting them in the top 60 teams in the nation.
The TCU women, ranked 22nd in the nation, posted a pair of conference records (4x100 relay and 4x400 relay). The Frogs also set new school marks in five events - indoor 400 meters, indoor 400-meter hurdles, indoor 4x400 relay, outdoor 200 meters and outdoor 4x400 relay.
All individual honors are above the required 3.2 GPA, and teams being recognized have a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.
