HAVERFORD, Pa. - Haverford men's cross country and track & field senior Greg Morgan has been named to the 2019 Google Cloud All-America Division III third team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced in a release on Tuesday afternoon. Morgan's selection represents the second straight season that Haverford cross country/track & field has had an Academic All-America honoree.
To be eligible for Academic All-America® consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his current institution, and be nominated by his sports information director.
Morgan closes his Haverford career as a four-time All-American, as he earned that distinction at least once during each of his three running seasons with the Fords, helping lead Haverford to a fourth-place national team finish in cross country in 2018.
The Hollidaysburg, Pa. product was Haverford's 2019 Varsity Cup winner, Haverford's highest athletic award, presented annually to the outstanding athlete in the senior class. Morgan was named the Mideast Region and Centennial Conference Track Performer of the Year during the 2019 indoor season, and graduated as a six-time Centennial Conference champion, 15-time All-Mideast Region selection, and 16-time All-Centennial Conference performer.
The computer science major was an exemplary student at Haverford, as he was named the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Performer of the Year for the 2019 track season. A five-time Centennial Conference Honor Roll selection, Morgan earned USTFCCCA All-Academic honors in each season of eligibility.
Since the program's inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 20,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.
