2013-14 SIRC-CCAA Academic All Canadian Awards

This year, 127 student-athletes have achieved combined excellence in collegiate athletics and academics.

 “The student-athletes who have achieved excellence in both athletics and academics are role models for the youth of today and destined to excel in their future careers,” says Debra Gassewitz, SIRC president and CEO. “SIRC is honoured to recognize these outstanding individuals as recipients of the SIRC-CCAA Academic All Canadian award.”

 
The SIRC-CCAA Academic All Canadian award is the CCAA’s most prestigious student-athlete honour, epitomizing both organizations’ commitment to academic success and athletic achievement. Honourees must attain academic honours at their institution in addition to obtaining one of the following athletic achievements: named to their member conference All-Star Team (first or second) in soccer, volleyball, basketball or curling; earn a gold or silver medal at their member conference badminton championship; finish among the top seven men or women as well as finishing in the top third at their member conference cross-country running championship; or finish among the top three women or top five men as well as finishing in the top third at their member conference golf championship.
 
“The CCAA is proud to recognize and celebrate those student-athletes who’ve attained the highest possible CCAA honour in their pursuit of academic and athletic excellence,” states Sandra Murray-MacDonell, CCAA Executive Director.
 
The SIRC-CCAA Academic All Canadian Recognition Award is also presented each year to the institution with the most student-athlete award recipients. This year, SIRC and the CCAA are pleased to present the award to Vancouver Island University which had  a total of eight recipients combining academic and athletic excellence.
