Student-athletes honoured for academic achievements
More than 160 student-athletes from Athletics and Recreation have achieved academic excellence this season. Eighty-seven earned the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Academic All-Canadian honour, while 84 earned Ontario University Athletic (OUA) Academic All-Star status.
To earn recognition as a CIS Academic All-Canadian or OUA Academic All-Star, a student-athlete must play in a CIS or OUA sanctioned sport and attain an average of 80 per cent or greater.
“At Queen's we strive for both academic and athletic excellence and our student-athletes continue to excel in both areas,” said Leslie Dal Cin, Director of Athletics and Recreation. “This is a tremendous individual honour that illustrates dedication and commitment to success in the classroom and on the field of play. We congratulate our student-athletes on this achievement and wish them success in the future.”
Both associations recognize academic accomplishments with the CIS recognizing student-athletes a national level and the OUA honouring student-athletes at the provincial level.
