Gallagher Named To ESPN Academic All-District Team
Fordham University junior Kerri Gallagher (Belle Harbor, N.Y./Bishop Kearney) was named to the 2010 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District women’s track & field/cross country second team.
Nominations and voting for the All-America programs are conducted by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America. There is a University Division (Division I programs) and a College Division (DII, DIII, NAIA, NJCAA programs).
