Guevel Named to UAA Presidents Scholar-Athlete Team

Jacqueline Guevel (CEE ‘ 14) is one of 10 CMU student-athletes who have been named to the University Athletic Association (UAA) Presidents Scholar-Athlete Team.  To achieve this recognition, a student-athlete must earn first-team All-UAA honors and must carry a 3.50 or greater cumulative grade-point average during the playing season.

For her career, Guevel is part of nine school records, six individual, and two UAA records for indoor and outdoor track and field.  She is a four-time All-American (indoor and outdoor) and 12-time All-UAA selection in track & field.  In 2011, she was named UAA Rookie of the Year and Most Outstanding Performer in running events for both the indoor and outdoor seasons, becoming the first-ever athlete to win both honors in the same year for both seasons. That same year she was named the Mideast Region Track Athlete of the Year.

At the close of the 2013 academic year, Guevel was also named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team for women's cross country and track and field for the 2012-13 season.  CoSIDA recognizes outstanding academic and athletic accomplishments by honoring deserving athletes with All-Academic recognition with the official sponsor of Capital One. Guevel now moves on to the national ballot for Capital One Academic All-America consideration.

Congratulations Jacqueline!
