Truman Lands 207 Academic All-GLVC Honorees

Of the 19 Truman programs competing in the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC), 207 student-athletes from the University garnered Academic All-GLVC honors.

The Academic All-GLVC honor is bestowed upon student-athletes who meet a cumulative GPA of 3.3 after two semesters at the institution. Truman, which ranked second in the conference in total honorees, easily surpassed the league average of 151 selections per school. Only Truman, Lewis and Indianapolis surpassed 200 total academic All-GLVC recipients.

The GLVC official total counts participants from each of the league’s 20 sponsored sports, meaning 19 of Truman’s 20 programs counted toward the University’s total. Wrestling is not yet a conference-sponsored sport. Ten of Truman’s teams placed at least 10 of its members onto the All-Academic GLVC squads, highlighted by women’s swimming’s at 17, which led all GLVC programs. The Bulldogs also had 16 student-athletes complete the year with a cumulative 4.0 grade-point average, accounting for nearly 14 percent of the 118 total athletes from 16 GLVC-member institutions to hit the perfect mark.
