Toledo, OH - Kristal Studer has been named to the 2011-12 Mid-American Conference All-Academic Team, the conference office announced on Monday.

This past fall, Studer earned Second-Team All-MAC honors after placing 14th in the conference championship meet in a time of 21:41.9. She rounded out the Rockets' scoring five that all set a new conference record for lowest point total in the championship meet (33).
