2013 Capital One Division III Academic All-District Women’s Track & Field/Cross Country Team
Jakubauskaite, a biology major, is one of 11 student-athletes on the all-district team. District 3 is comprised of institutions located in New York State.
Jakubauskaite proved to be one of the top high jumpers in team history in her only full season after she suffered an injury during her first year. Jakubauskaite tied the program’s indoor record in the high jump at the New York State Collegiate Track Conference (NYSCTC) championships and broke it a week later at the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III championships. She started the year with high jump wins at her second and third meets.
Jakubauskaite continued her success into the outdoor season. She won the high jump in consecutive meets and qualified for the ECAC Division III championships. Jakubauskaite’s best height was just .02 meters off the program record.
Jakubauskaite was a two-time member of the NESCAC all-academic team. She was the women’s indoor track & field team’s recipient of Hamilton’s 2013 SAAC scholar-athlete award for her dedication and loyalty to both academics and athletics.
The all-district teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Student-athletes need to be at least sophomores in academic standing at their institution to be eligible. They also need to have a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 or better on a 4.0 scale.
