Park University had 46 student-athletes named to the Academic All-Conference team released by the American Midwest Conference, which honored 445 student-athletes from men's and women's golf, men's and women's track and field, baseball, and softball teams among the league's 12 member institutions.
To be considered for the AMC's Academic All-Conference team, student-athletes must be in the second term of attendance at the institution and have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 as defined by the nominating institution at the time of nomination.
"To have 46 of the 445 student-athletes identified as Academic All-Conference in the AMC on our campus says a lot about our department's priorities," said Park University Director of Athletics Claude English. "We stress that the word student comes first for a reason in the term student-athlete. Our student-athletes are expected to perform in the classroom before they're able to perform on the court, course, track or field."
In all, Park had 89 academic all-conference honorees, including 26 in the fall (cross country, men's and women's soccer, women's volleyball) and 17 in the winter (men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball).
