UAA All-Academic honorees


Seventy-five Case Western Reserve University sping sport participants received All-Academic recognition from the University Athletic Association for the 2017 season, as announced by the conference on Wednesday.

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.
