Buffalo, NY - The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference announced their 2016-17 Academic All-Conference Team on Wednesday as part of their continued celebration of Division III week.
To become an AMCC Academic All-Conference selection, a student-athlete must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher as of the Fall 2016 semester. Throughout the entire AMCC, 895 student-athletes were named an Academic All-Conference selection.
Student-athletes that earned a cumulative 3.5 GPA or higher were named Peak Performers, which made up 61% (547) of the total number of student-athletes that were named to the Academic All-Conference Team. A select group of student-athletes were also selected for induction to Chi Alpha Sigma, the National Collegiate Student-Athlete Honor Society, which recognizes both academic performance, leadership and character for selected juniors and seniors.
