49 varsity athletes earn academic honours

WATERLOO, Ont. (July 15, 2014) Wilfrid Laurier University had 49 varsity athletes succeed at earning their respective league awards for academic achievement over the last academic year, and the Department of Athletics could not be more proud.  

The Golden Hawks 18 varsity teams are made up of almost 500 student athletes, which means that almost ten percent of varsity student-athletes were able to reach the prestigious awards. The OUA Academic All-Star and CIS Academic All-Canadian awards recognize those who achieve an academic average of 80 percent or higher for the school year. 

"Success on the playing field goes hand in hand with Academic success" said PETER BAXTER, Director Athletics and Recreation. "Laurier Golden Hawks are athlete scholars who graduate to become leaders in their career and community. Having so many earn OUA and CIS Academic honours speaks ‎to the quality of individuals that wear the Purple and Gold."

Leading the way with eight athletes earning CIS Academic All-Canadian awards was Lauriers womens soccer team.  Mens rugby followed with seven of their athletes qualifying for the OUA Academic Award.
