Purdue Northwest Athletics was well represented when the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) announced its All-Academic & All-Academic Excellence Teams Wednesday following the Fall 2018 semester. The Pride had 43 student-athletes across six fall teams (men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and women’s tennis) named to either the All-Academic or All-Academic Excellence Team.
A total of 873 student-athletes across the entire conference achieved all-academic recognition, including 421 on the All-Academic team and 452 on the All-Excellence list. Criteria for the recognition states that the student-athlete must be an active member on the roster at the end of the season, not a freshman or a first-year transfer student.
All-Academic Teams are comprised of student-athletes who meet the criteria and carry a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0-3.49. Academic Excellence Teams are comprised of student-athletes who have a cumulative GPA of 3.50-4.0. Grades are based on marks from the fall semester of 2018.
