Lake Forest Athletes Garner 96 Academic All-MWC Honors

The Midwest Conference released the list of 2015-16 Academic All-MWC honorees on Monday and Lake Forest College student-athletes were listed 96 times.

The criteria to become an Academic All-MWC selection includes a minimum grade point average of 3.33, which is calculated only in the awarded academic year. Student-athletes who letter in any MWC sport are eligible for the award.

The Forester men's and women's hockey teams had six and eight players, respectively, named to the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association All-Academic Teams in April and the College's 110 league academic awards this year rank second in school history, trailing only the 127 earned in 2014-15. The 2013-14 mark of 88 is now the department's third-best showing.

Five Foresters - women's soccer players Michelle Greeneway and Ellen Rogers, men's basketball player Chase Janer, women's basketball player K.C. Stralka, and men's swimmer Kristofer Korth - earned the award for the fourth consecutive year. They were among the 26 seniors who finished off their fourth year of college with a GPA of as least 3.33.

Six Lake Forest teams set or tied their highest output of Academic All-MWC honorees. Football had the most selections of any of the College's teams with 16. Women's soccer was second with 12, tying the program's record-setting output from each of the last two years, and the men's soccer team was third with 10. Women's cross country had the highest percentage of its members listed with nine out of 13 (69.2%) and the softball team's nine honorees matched the record set last year. The Forester women's basketball and men's swimming and diving teams each had nine honorees; the volleyball, men's cross country, and women's swimming and diving teams five; the women's tennis team four; the men's golf and tennis teams three; the men's basketball team two; and the women's golf team one.

"It was another extremely successful year for our teams, both in athletic competition and in the classroom," began Lake Forest College Director of Athletics Jackie Slaats. "This outstanding listing of academic all-conference honorees, coupled with with our record number of A-team athletes this spring, continues to make me proud and is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our student-athletes and coaches in keeping the Forester tradition of academic and athletic excellence alive and well."
