EMU Puts 82 On ODAC All-Academic Team

EMU Puts 82 On ODAC All-Academic Team

Another successful year of competition has been matched with another successful year in the classroom for EMU’s student athletes. The Royals put 82 men and women on the annual Old Dominion Athletic Conference All-Academic Team.

Eligibility for the ODAC All-Academic Team is open to any student-athlete that competes in a conference-sponsored sport, regardless of academic class. He or she must achieve at least a 3.25 grade point average for the year to be considered for an ODAC All-Academic Award.

There has been a consistent increase in the number of honorees for Eastern Mennonite University recently. Just five years ago, the EMU programs placed 53 on the All-Academic Team. This year’s total is slightly down from last year’s record 103, but still well above where it was in 2010-11.

All of EMU’s ODAC-sponsored sports were represented on the All-Academic Team.  Men’s volleyball competes in the Continental Volleyball Conference which fields its own academic team.

Old Dominion Athletic Conference student-athletes set a record for the seventh straight season as 1,846 honorees comprise the 2015-16 ODAC All-Academic Team. Representatives from each of the conference's 17 member institutions -- 14 full-time and three associates -- pushed the squad's total over 1,000 for the 10th consecutive year.

Washington and Lee University placed the most student-athletes on the list with 312 individuals on the academic team. In total, nine ODAC-member schools eclipsed 100 honorees.
