LOWELL -- Jacqui Barrett (Woburn), who won the NCAA Division II championship in the shot put, was named to the ESPN The Magazine College Division Academic All-America Second Team, released yesterday.
Barrett is UMass Lowell's first Academic All-American since UMass Lowell's field hockey coach Shannon (LeBlanc) Hlebichuk earned the distinction in 1997.
The ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America teams are voted upon by the College Sports Information Directors of America. The College Division includes NCAA Division II and III colleges and universities.
