"Emory & Henry sponsors 24 varsity sports, 20 of which are NCAA sports that compete in the ODAC and four non-NCAA sports with their own governing bodies," commented Joe Matthews, E&H Director of Sports Information. "It is fitting that we as a department have chosen to recognize the student-athletes who have achieved the same level of academic excellence as their classmates from ODAC-sponsored programs."

The Intermont Equestrian Teams led the way with 31 student-athletes on the list. The cheer and dance squads had four and two of their members, respectively, achieve the mark for this past year.
