"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.
Eligibility for the award is open to any student-athlete, regardless of academic class. He or she must achieve at least a 3.25 grade point average for the year to be considered.
