Fall Student Athletes Earn SCIAC Academic Honors

Fall Student Athletes Earn SCIAC Academic Honors

Every year the SCIAC honors the league's student-athletes who have not only performed well on the playing surface but excelled in the classroom. For the 2013-2014 academic year, there were 26 different Caltech fall student-athletes who were honored.

While each sport has different athletics criteria to earn the honor, each student-athlete must have accumulated a cumulative GPA of 3.4 and be a sophomore.
