56 from Brandeis named to Spring All-Academic team

WALTHAM, MASS. – The University Athletic Association (UAA) has awarded 56 Brandeis student-athletes All-Academic Recognition on its spring list.  The athletes honored on the list are from the spring sports of baseball, softball, men's and women's tennis and men's and women's track and field.

Within the UAA, All-Academic Recognition is awarded to student-athletes who have completed at least one full year of college study and who carry a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.300. The 3.300 minimum cumulative grade point average is the same academic standard used as a qualifying threshold by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) for the nomination of Academic All-America® candidates in all sports.

The UAA Presidents Council established a program of All-Academic recognition in April 1998. Qualifying student-athletes are recognized at the completion of the fall, winter, and spring seasons each year. The honor is intended to recognize the high level of academic achievement demonstrated by student-athletes who effectively balance their significant commitment of time, effort, and energy in athletic endeavor with their highly challenging academic responsibilities.

Brandeis student-athletes continue to meet the ideals set forth by the Presidents Council, putting in incredible effort both on the field and in the classroom.
