The Academic All-America program annually honors over 1600 student-athletes who have succeeded at the highest level on the playing field and in the classroom. Individuals are selected through voting by CoSIDA (the College Sports Information Directors of America), a 2,000-member organization consisting of sports public relations professionals for colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.

To be eligible, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his current institution and be nominated by his sports information director.

The Gusties (16-3-1 overall, 9-1-0 MIAC), MIAC Regular Season Co-Champions and MIAC Post-Season Champions, will take on Whitworth in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Oshkosh, Wis. Friday at 5:00 pm.
