USTFCCCA released their lists of All-Academic Athletes and Teams for the 2014 NCAA Cross Country season.  All eight Ivy League teams earned All-Academic Team honors, and each school had at least one athlete who was selected for the All-Academic Individual honors.  Teams were selected for All-Academic honors if the cumulative team GPA was above 3.0.   Individual honorees must have compiled a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 and have finished in the top 15 finishers (or 10 percent) at NCAA Regionals or as an All-American at the national meet.

While the two Harvard teams had the highest GPAs for their respective genders (3.48 for the men, 3.63 for the women), Princeton had the highest number of individual honorees with four (William Bertrand, Matt McDonald, Megan Curham, and Natalie Rathjen).
