July 25, 2012

HOUSTON - University of Houston track and field thrower John Fortune, along with hurdler DeMeeka Jones and multi-event competitor Megan Frausto have recently been named to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division I Track and Field All-Academic Team.

This latest accolade marks the second straight year Fortune and Frausto have received this honor.

Fortune, a two-time Conference USA All-Academic team member, placed third (17.42m) in shot put at the C-USA Indoor Championship this past season. As a sophomore, the Cleveland, Texas, native advanced to the NCAA Preliminaries in the shot put and placed third at the C-USA Indoor Championships and took home fifth in the event at the C-USA Outdoor Championships.

The chemistry major is a two-time recipient of the C-USA Commissioner's Academic Medal and also serves as the track and field representative to the UH Student-Athlete Advisory Council.

Along with her academic success, Jones has four top-five finishes in the 100m hurdles and advanced to the NCAA Outdoor Championship this past season.

Frausto, a three-time C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll member, was also named to the 2012 C-USA All-Academic Team and the 2011-12 Capital One/CoSida Academic All-District Second Team. As a junior, she won her first C-USA indoor title in the pentathlon and advanced to the NCAA Indoor Championship. The Royse City, Texas, native also took home second in the heptathlon at the C-USA Outdoor Championship.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have met either of the following athletic standards.

For the indoor season:
