BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -
The Big Ten Conference announced on Wednesday, March 31, that Indiana University student-athletes claimed 29 Academic All-Big Ten selections for the winter season.
Student-athletes must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better to be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection. A total of 546 winter sport student-athletes were honored across seven sports.
"To have this many Academic All-Big Ten honorees with a limited number of winter sports speaks volumes about the quality of our student-athletes, coaches and academic support staff," IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass said.
The Indiana women's swimming and diving team led the way with 10 honorees, while the men's swimming and diving squad posted six on the list. IU women's basketball recorded five honorees, while men's basketball and wrestling each recorded four honorees.
"The Indiana swimming and diving coaching staff is very proud of our Academic All-Big Ten selections this season," said head swimming coach Ray Looze. "They personify the ideals we strive to achieve with our student-athletes here at the pool."
