Central York High School graduate Megan Lundy, a sophomore at Shippensburg University, was named Thursday afternoon to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-District 2 Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Team for NCAA Division II athletics.

Lundy is majoring in early childhood education (PreK-4) and has maintained a perfect 4.0 grade-point average through 60 credits of coursework.

A 400-meter specialist, Lundy was a national qualifier both indoors and outdoors — earning All-America honors (eighth place) indoors and placing 11th outdoors despite running another personal-best time in prelims. She is the first and only women's athlete in school history to earn All-America honors in the 400 meters.

In Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Championships competition, Lundy won both the conference indoor (56.45 seconds) and outdoor (:55.17) titles while also anchoring victorious 4x4 relays indoors (3:54.48) and outdoors (3:47.18). Both indoor performances resulted in all-region accolades.

Her 400-meter preliminary qualifying time of :56.34 seconds (:55.61 converted) at the NCAA Championships established the current school record, breaking her own mark set at the conference championships.

Lundy was named the 2014 PSAC Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Year in late March. The conference has not yet announced its outdoor award winners.

Through two years, Lundy is already an eight-time PSAC place-winner and six-time PSAC champion while qualifying for three NCAA Division II Championships.
