The Paladins are proud to announce that 49 student-athletes at RMC have earned Academic All-Star status for the 2019-20 school year.
Varsity athletes who achieve a GPA of 80% or higher during the previous academic year and play in U SPORTS competition earn the title of Academic All-Canadians, while those whose competitions do not fall under the U SPORTS banner earn OUA Academic Achievement awards. All varsity athletes who achieve this high standard are named Academic All-Stars at the College.
"Especially this year, when we don't have their athletic accomplishments to celebrate, I'm glad to see so many of our student-athletes are once again being honoured as Academic All-Stars," RMC Director of Athletics Darren Cates said.
Achieving such high standing in academics can be a challenge for student-athletes at any institution, which makes the efforts of RMC's recipients, who also have additional military duties on top of their studies and athletics, even more remarkable.
