 BIG EAST RELEASE | Denver Ticket Office

The University of Denver men’s and women’s lacrosse programs were recognized for their academic achievements by the BIG EAST Conference on Wednesday, with 35 men and 30 women making the 2016-17 All-Academic Team.

Nominations for the All-Academic Team are submitted by each of the BIG EAST’s 10 member and nine affiliate institutions. To be eligible for the honor, a nominee must have competed in a BIG EAST-sponsored sport, attained a minimum grade-point average of 3.00 for the preceding academic year, and completed a minimum of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters of academic work, with a total of 18 semester or 27 quarter credits, not including remedial courses.
The nominations are reviewed and approved by the BIG EAST Academic Affairs Committee. There are 2,501 honorees for the 2016-17 academic year, the most in the four years since conference realignment.

Last year, the men’s program had 26 players receive the accolade, 18 of which also received the honor last year.

The women’s program was also recently named to the IWLCA Zag Sports Academic Honor Squad for their performance in the classroom for the eighth-straight year.
