Forty-four UAM student-athletes garnered All-Academic recognition from the GAC for their excellence in the classroom for the 2020-21 academic year, the league announced Monday.
For student-athletes to be recognized on the Academic All-Conference team, they must have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing (true freshmen and redshirt freshmen are not eligible) and must have completed at least one full academic year at the nominating institution. In addition, their grade-point average must be a minimum of 3.30 based on the 4.0 system. The GPA shall be cumulative for the athlete’s entire collegiate career.
“The 2020-21 academic year presented our institutions, student-athletes and professors with unprecedented challenges,” GAC Commissioner Will Prewitt said. “For our student-athletes to achieve at a record-setting rate speaks to their impressive ability to excel in all circumstances.”
