Emory University placed 74 student-athletes on the University Athletic Association Spring All-Academic Team earlier this week. 530 student-athletes in total from the eight association schools were recognized by the UAA.
To be named to the UAA Spring All-Academic Team, a student-athlete must complete at least one full year of college study and carry a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.30.
The 3.30 GPA 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 74 Emory Eagles recognized were spread out over six sports that compete in the spring with women’s outdoor track & field leading the way with 21 student-athletes.
Women’s Outdoor Track & Field: 21
Men’s Outdoor Track & Field: 20
