Vulcans place 65 on Division 2 academic achievement awards list
The Division 2 Athletics Directors Association honored the 2022-23 recipients of the D2 ADA Academic Achievement Awards with 65 Hawai’i Hilo student-athletes receiving honors for finishing the school year with a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
In its 16th year, the Academic Achievement Awards recognized a record-breaking 19,646 total student-athletes from 196 institutions across the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division II.
“This program continues to showcase the amazing student-athletes, and the impactful support of their coaches and staff, across our Division 2 landscape. I want to congratulate all the recipients for earning the D2 ADA Academic Achievement Award,” said Kirby Garry, director of athletics at Cal State Monterey Bay and current Division 2 Athletics Directors Association president.
“While the number of deserving student-athletes continues to increase annually, the number of institutions recognizing these individuals on campus also continues to trend upwards. We look forward to eclipsing the 200-institution barrier next year,” Garry added.
To be eligible, student-athletes must have completed at least two years of college-level courses and have been an active member of an intercollegiate team during the last academic year.
