NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Senior Caroline Yarbrough and sophomore Eleni Daughters were named to the Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team, announced by the league Wednesday.

For Yarbrough it marks her seventh selection, while Daughters made her first appearance in just her second bid. It marks the second consecutive outdoor season two Wildcats made the grade – Yarbrough and Sarah Sears ’18 earned the recognition last year. 

Yarbrough, a native of Greensboro, N.C., has become a staple on the A-10 All-Academic Team after earning her seventh spot in nine opportunities. Yarbrough will graduate this month with a degree in Art History and a minor in History.  

Yarbrough recorded 123 points over her career in A-10 Championship Meets including adding 16 more at the 2019 installment. Her win in the 10,000-meter run was her fourth individual title, while she also placed third in the 5k.

Last summer she was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-District and the USTFCCCA All-Academic team for her efforts in the 2017-18 track and field campaigns.

Daughters, continued to improve throughout her sophomore campaign, culminating in a school record 800-meter run of 2:08.26 at the A-10 Outdoor Championship. The Pasadena, Calif., native placed sixth in the half mile and helped lead the 4×800-meter relay team to a silver medal. Daughters won a pair of 800m races throughout the season.
