PRINCETON, N.J. (6/21/12) - Alex Banfich '12 of the Princeton women's cross country and track & field teams has been named to Capital One Academic All-America Division I Cross Country and Track & Field Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Banfich is a third-team selection to the Academic All-America team, and is the first from the program to earn the honor since Megan Brandeland was named third-team in 2009.

A four-time All-America, Banfich earned Princeton's von Kienbusch Award for the school's most outstanding senior female student-athlete. She placed fifth at the 2011 NCAA Cross Country Championship, the highest finish by a Tigers at the NCAAs in program history. A captain of both squads, Banfich has earned two All-America honors in cross country and two in track. During her career she competed in six NCAA Championships and was a first-team All-Ivy League selection four times, while also winning the individual title at the 2010 Ivy League cross country championship. Banfich has helped to guide Princeton to six Ivy League team titles including a triple crown in 2010-11. A native of Plymouth, Ind., Banfich graduated in May with a degree in history.
