Frisco, Texas- For the second straight year, Texas State senior distance runner Tenley Determan was named to the Southland Conference women’s cross country and track All-Academic Teams after her record-setting outdoor track and field campaign.

San Antonio College Relays in Walnut, Calif., where she set a Texas State school record with a time of 37:10.51. It was just the third time in her four-year collegiate career that she had competed in a 10,000-meter race. She broke the former school record of 37:10.66 that was set by Sonia Garza in 1998. Her previous best was 38:22.46 in 2007.

Then, she won the 10,000-meters at the 2008 SLC Championships with a time of 38:24.07 and that time set broke Sam Houston State’s stadium record in Huntsville. Determan also earned a sixth-place finish in the 5,000 meters at the SLC meet with a time of 17:58.54.

A senior from College Station, Texas, Determan is a Psychology major (Sports Psychology minor) with a 3.72 GPA. She is a two-time member of the Southland Conference All-Academic team, earned Texas State’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year award in 2007, been a member of the Dean’s list during seven of her eight semesters at Texas State, and received a Student-Athlete of the Month award in 2008.
