Athletics: Razorback Ulrey Named Academic All-American

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas Razorback junior Dorian Ulrey, a member of the men's track and field team, was named a second-team CoSIDA ESPN The Magazine Academic-American, it was released on Thursday.

Last week, Ulrey, a native of Port Byron, Ill., was named to the CoSIDA ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District team. With a GPA of 3.50 as a sociology major, he was also named the Southeastern Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year last month.

Ulrey was also the recipient of the 2008-09 SEC Sportsmanship Award, it was announced by the conference office during the NCAA Championships. He was chosen by a vote of the SEC Directors of Athletics.

Ulrey, in his first season with the Hogs and competing in the SEC, picked up three SEC titles in 2009: the mile and 3,000 meters indoors and the 1,500 meters outdoors. He was also a three-time NCAA Indoor All-American (mile, 3,000 meters, distance medley relay).

Indoors, he clocked the NCAA's No. 3 mile time and No. 4 3K time. His season bests in both events led the SEC. He was also a member of the NCAA- and SEC-leading and school-record setting DMR (9:28.35) with a 3:54 mile split as the anchor.

Outdoors, he won the SEC 1,500 meters and finished third in the 800 meters. He also took the NCAA Mideast Regional title in the 1,500 meters. Ulrey earned his fourth All-America honor of the season with a fourth-place finish in the 1,500-meter final at the NCAA Championships. He clocked a season- and personal-best time of 3:39.93.

Ulrey will run in the 1,500 meters at the USA Championships June 25-28. For more information, visit ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
