In 2009, she was named a Rhodes Scholar finalist and was selected to the The Magazine Academic All-America Third Team. The senior from Tuscon, Ariz., completed her career as the school record holder in the indoor and outdoor pole vault and was a three-time all-C- selection.

Beattie was named to the men’s first team after earning a 3.50 in the master’s of business administration program. The senior from Southampton, England, is a 2008 Cross Country All-American, a seven-time C- individual champion and a four-time C- Athlete of the Year. He will run in the 10,000m at the Championships next weekend in Eugene, Ore.

Mace earned second team honors with a 3.84 in exercise sports science. The Owasso, Okla., native is a 10-time all-C- selection and a four-time C- individual champion including three titles this year in the indoor 400m, indoor 4×400m relay and outdoor 4×400m relay.
