Dal celebrates CIS Academic All-Canadians

 

 

Dalhousie honoured its top student-athletes at the 14th annual Academic All-Canadian Luncheon. Ninety-three varsity athletes were recognized in the presence of peers, professors and parents for their academic accomplishments according to standards set by Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS).

To qualify as an academic all-Canadian, a student-athlete must maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 80 per cent or better over the academic year, while competing in a varsity sport. All 14 of Dalhousie’s varsity teams were represented in the awards ceremony, showcasing the breadth of academic success exhibited by Tigers student-athletes.
