Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s impressive academic accolades continue to roll in as the NJCAA announced the 2019-2020 All-Academic Teams. Co-Lin landed 44 individuals on the teams.
“NJCAA student-athletes proved that no obstacle is too difficult to overcome,” stated NJCAA President & CEO Dr. Christopher Parker in a statement released by the NJCAA. “These difficulties pushed our student-athletes to the limit this year, but the opportunity to overcome these challenges presented itself and our student-athletes flourished academically. The association commends all individuals for their continued success on the playing surfaces and in the classrooms.”
Student-athletes are eligible to earn academic honors by achieving an overall GPA of 3.60 or higher for the 2019-20 academic year. The criteria for the three All-Academic teams are: NJCAA All-Academic First Team: 4.00 GPA; NJCAA All-Academic Second Team: 3.80-3.99 GPA; and NJCAA All-Academic Third Team: 3.60-3.79 GPA.
