Horns boast 42 Academic All-Canadians

A total of 42 University of Lethbridge Pronghorns achieved Academic All-Canadian status in 2010-11, a remarkable 20 per cent of the school's total athletes and an increase of 12 from the previous year.

Every academic year, Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) honours its student athletes who excel in both the academic and athletic arenas. Those who maintain an 80 per cent average in their studies are honoured as Academic All-Canadians. This is an outstanding accomplishment considering the amount of time student-athletes commit to training and competing. Routinely, Pronghorn Athletics possesses an above average number of Academic All-Canadians recipients in the CIS, and this year was no different with more than 20 per cent of the program's athletes earning accolades as Academic All-Canadians.

Of the 42 honoured athletes, the Horns women's soccer team led the way with eight team members achieving Academic All-Canadian status. The Horns women's hockey team and the men's track and field team also had six athletes each receiving the award.

Following is the list of Pronghorn Athletes who are recognized as CIS Academic All Canadians for 2010-11
