Forty Lake Erie Student-Athletes Earn All-GLIAC Academic Honors for Fall Season

 PAINESVILLE, OHIO -- A total of 40 Lake Erie College student-athletes earned recognition on the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Fall 2010 All-Academic and All-Academic Excellence Teams, announced by the league office.

The GLIAC honored students across the league in the following sports: men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s tennis and volleyball. To be eligible for all-academic status, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0-3.49 on a 4.0 scale and must not be a freshman or first-year transfer.  Those with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and higher were awarded all-academic excellence status.

“We are very proud of the hard work our student-athletes put in both on the fields of play and in the classroom,” said Director of Athletics Griz Zimmermann.  “They are great examples of the quality student leaders here at Lake Erie College and of the standard of excellence that has been set by our student-athletes and sports programs.”

Twenty student-athletes were named to all-academic excellence teams and 20 to the all-academic squads. The Storm football team had the most student-athletes named to the team with a total of 12.  Next was volleyball with a total of 11 selections, including a school-high seven who received all-academic excellence.  The men’s and women’s soccer teams each had six awarded, while the cross country teams each had a pair and women’s tennis had one.
