June 27, 2005
Memphis, Tenn. - Two weeks after competing in her first NCAA Track and Field Championships, Lisa-Marie Hyman added another accolade to a long list of accomplishments, as the University of Memphis senior was selected as a third team honoree for the 2004-05 ESPN The Magazine Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Teams.
Hyman, who was chosen to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District First Teams each of the past two seasons, was an honorable mention selection to the All-America Teams in 2004. With her third team honor for 2005, she becomes the first U of M track and field athlete ever to be named to an Academic All-America team.
The Kingston, Jamaica, native completed her master's degree in mathematical sciences in May after receiving her bachelor's degree in mathematical sciences in 2004. She compiled a graduate GPA of 3.91 and an undergraduate GPA of 3.81.
On the track, Hyman racked up the accomplishments as well. Aside from competing in the National Championships, she is a three-time Conference USA Champion and three-time C-USA runner-up in the triple jump, is a two-time NCAA Mid-East Regional qualifier and holds Memphis records in both the indoor and outdoor triple jump.
After completing her eligibility as well as her two degrees, Hyman now plans to start work on her doctorate's degree in mathematics while also starting a career as a teacher.
