HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) has announced its All-Academic and All-Academic Excellence Teams for all 2022-23 Winter Sports, and 36 Michigan Tech student-athletes earned recognition.

Criteria for the awards state that the student-athlete must be an active member on the roster at the end of the season, not a freshman or a first-year transfer student.

According to a press release, GLIAC All-Academic teams are comprised of those student-athletes that meet the criteria and carry a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0-3.49. GLIAC Academic Excellence teams are comprised of student-athletes that have a cumulative GPA of 3.50-4.0. Grades are based on marks from the 2022 fall semester.

A total of 679 student-athletes achieved all-academic recognition in the conference, including 255 on the All-Academic team and 424 on the All-Excellence list.
