CENTRAL VALLEY, Pa. - Nineteen Army runners were recognized by the Patriot League on Wednesday, earning spots on the Academic Honor Roll. The Black Knights were among a list of 107 women's and 72 men's cross country competitors to be recognized, having earned at least a 3.20 grade point average during the 2011 fall semester.

Seven of the nine Army upperclassmen recognized are repeat honorees, highlighted by senior Mike Mitchell. Mitchell became the fifth Black Knight in Patriot League history to earn the certificate following all four seasons of competition, and the first since Robert Squier did so 2004-07. The Geospatial Information Science major with a 3.593 GPA finished in Army's top six in six of seven races this past fall. Along with classmate Chelsea Prahl, Mitchell was selected to the Academic All-Patriot League team following the season.

Prahl made her third appearance on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll after the American Politics major earned a 3.676 GPA. Prahl had a breakout senior season for the Black Knights, earning Army's top time in four races while being named to the All-Patriot League first team following a sixth-place finish at the conference championships.

Freshman Lisa Junta (4.095) and sophomore Kendall Ward (4.186) earned the top GPAs for the women's and men's teams, respectively. Junta finished in Army's top five in all but one race last season, while Ward finished in the Black Knights' top three on three occasions.

Bucknell led all teams with 40 (29 women, 11 men) award recipients, followed by Navy with 27 (15 women, 12 men). Lehigh added 24 to the list, while Holy Cross posted 23, followed by Colgate's 19, American's 15 and Lafayette's 14.
