WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue Athletics produced 90 Academic All-Big Ten spring honorees for the second year in a row, helping the department set another record with 265 total honors for the 2021-22 school year.

The Boilermakers had a record 107 Academic All-Big Ten honorees in the fall and 68 in the winter. The spring season has been very consistent the last few years, producing 92 honorees in the spring of 2021 and 89 the year prior. Both totals were a spring record at the time.

To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten, student-athletes must be enrolled full-time at their university for a minimum of 12 months and carry a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Big Ten Distinguished Scholar recognition is based on a 3.7-plus yearly or cumulative GPA for sophomores and above. Those honorees will be announced later this summer.

Track & field led the way with a combined 43 Academic All-Big Ten honorees this spring – 22 from the women’s roster and 21 from the men’s side. Baseball contributed 19, softball added 11, men’s golf had seven honorees, women’s golf six, and two apiece from each of the tennis programs.

Runners Ian Hunter, Mya Haggerty and Tessa Sheets as well as baseball player Troy Viola earned special recognition for maintaining flawless 4.0 cumulative GPAs.

Thirty of the 90 Academic All-Big Ten honorees from the spring earned the distinction for at least third time. Among that group, golfers Cole Bradley, Joe Weiler and Inez Wanamarta as well as runners Curt Eckstein and Megan Slamkowski plus pole vaulter Tessa Sheets were four-year honorees.

 

Altogether, 56 of the 90 Boilermakers (62%) recognized this month are now multi-year Academic All-Big Ten honorees. Softball had nine of its 11 (82%) honorees on the list for at least the second time and both of the men’s tennis players recognized were repeat Academic All-Big Ten student-athletes.

The Big Ten Conference recognized a record total of 2,293 student-athletes as Academic All-Big Ten honorees for the spring and at-large sports season. That total includes 674 from track & field, 189 from baseball, 186 from softball, 166 from golf, 143 from tennis, and 935 from the sports that Purdue does not sponsor.
