    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana Athletics boasted 55 honorees on the 2012-13 Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Awards list, announced by the Big Ten Conference on Wednesday, July 10, representing baseball, women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, field hockey, football, men's and women's golf, rowing, women's soccer, softball, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track and field, volleyball, water polo and wrestling.

    "These 55 student-athletes represent the highest ideals of intercollegiate athletics," said Fred Glass, Indiana Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. "They continue IU Athletics' longstanding tradition of success in the classroom. We are so proud to call them Hoosiers".

    In February of 2008, Big Ten Faculty Representatives established a conference academic recognition to supplement the Academic All-Big Ten program. Similar to the Academic All-Big Ten honor, Distinguished Scholar Award recipients must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution. However, the Distinguished Scholar Award encompasses only student-athletes with a minimum GPA of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year, excluding summer school. The Academic All-Big Ten threshold is a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for a student-athlete's academic career.
