NEW ORLEANS (7/24/12) - The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) has announced the men's 2012 Division I All-Academic Track & Field team. Earning the honors for Princeton are sophomore Alejandro Arroyo Yamin, junior Peter Callahan and senior Thomas Dialynas and Trevor Van Ackeren.

Arroyo Yamin qualified in both the indoor and outdoor seasons. Indoor he was part of the distance medley relay that ranked No. 69 in the country with a time of 9:51.11. During the outdoor season, Arroyo Yamin qualified for the NCAA Regional after running a 29:27.00 at the Sam Howell Invitational. He clocked in at 31:20.32 to finish 34th in the semifinals.

Dialynas competed in the 10k outdoors as well. He qualified for the East Regional after running 29:41.22 at the Howell. He placed 40th in the semifinal at 32:11.61.

Callahan is making the All-Academic team for the second straight season. Although an injury would sideline his outdoor season, Callahan had a spectacular indoor season. He was an All-America in the mile finishing sixth in the national fine. Callahan also qualified by ranking 31st in the 800 (1:48.82) and 13th in the DMR (9:31.95).

Like Callahan, this is Van Ackeren's second appearance on the All-Academic team. Indoors he was a member of the No. 13-ranked DMR. Outdoors he reached the national semifinal in the 1500, earning second-team All-America honors. He ran a PR of 3:42.83 in the semifinal and finished 14th in the nation.

To qualify for the USTFCCCA All-Academic Track and Field Team, the student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 and have met either of the following athletic standards: for the indoor season, a student-athlete must have finished the regular season ranked in the national top 96 in an individual event or ranked in the national top 48 (collective listing) in a relay event on the official NCAA POP list provided by TFRRS.org; for the outdoor season, a student-athlete must have participated in any round of the NCAA Division I Championships (including preliminary rounds).
