MARQUETTE, Mich.— A total of 69 Northern Michigan University student-athletes were named to the 2017-18 Winter Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference All-Academic and All-Academic Excellence teams. The total surpasses the 49 combined honorees from a year ago.

Women's track & field led the Wildcats Varsity programs with 21 total honorees between both awards, followed by men's swim & dive with 20. Women's swim & dive also had double-digits with 14 honorees, while women's basketball had nine and men's basketball had four.

A total of 37 Wildcats were named to the All-Academic Excellence Team, including 18 for women's track & field, eight for men's swim & dive, six for women's basketball, four for women's swim & dive, and one for men's basketball.

In total, 610 student-athletes were recognized by the GLIAC for their work in the classroom this past fall. To be eligible, a student-athlete had to be on the active roster at the end of the season and could not be a freshman or a first-year transfer. Spots on the All-Academic (3.0-3.49) and All-Academic Excellence (3.50-4.0) teams were determined based on cumulative GPA.
