NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Saint Joseph's senior Dan Savage and junior David Dorsey have been voted onto the Atlantic 10 Outdoor Track and Field Academic All-Conference Team. To be nominated, student-athletes must have a GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) for their entire academic career. The teams were selected through voting conducted by the league's Sports Information Directors.

Savage claimed the silver medal in the 3000m steeplechase (9:08.40) and placed fifth in the 5000m (14:32.27 PR) at the 2017 Atlantic 10 Outdoor Track and Field Championships three weekends ago and followed up with a seventh-place finish in the 3000m steeplechase at the IC4A Outdoor Track and Field Championships with a collegiate-best time of 9:04.05, which sent him to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field East Preliminary Rounds. Savage also placed fourth in the 5000m (14:47.50) at Princeton's Sam Howell Invitational and fifth in the 3000m steeplechase (9:15.23) at the Colonial Relays earlier this season. Savage studied risk management and insurance as an undergraduate at Saint Joseph's University and will race the 3000m steeplechase in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field East Preliminary Rounds quarterfinal this evening at 7:15 p.m.

Dorsey finished 11th in the 10,000m at the 2017 A-10 outdoor meet. He also placed sixth in his first collegiate 10,000m (31:14.08 PR) at Princeton's Larry Ellis Invitational and raced the 5000m at both the Colonial Relays (15:10.75) and Princeton's Sam Howell Invitational (15:13.42) earlier this season. Dorsey studies English at Saint Joseph's University.

Freshman John Walker qualified for the inaugural A-10 Outdoor Track and Field All-Rookie Team in the 1500m. The team is comprised of the top rookie performer in each event from meets conducted from the start of the regular season through the Atlantic 10 Championships. Walker raced the 1500m twice this season. The rookie raced to a time of season-best time of 3:58.55 at the Lehigh Games back on April 29 and also clocked in at 3:59.58 at the Widener Invitational back in April.
