Bisons soar to new academic success record

For the third consecutive year record number of student-athletes earn Academic All-Canadian status

October 4, 2018 — 

At the completion of the 2017-18 season, 123 of the 340 University of Manitoba student-athletes qualified for U SPORTS Academic All-Canadian status.

This accomplishment of 123 Bison student-athletes represents the most ever in one season, previously set last season (2016-17) with 117. It’s the eighth straight season that 85 or more Bison student-athletes have achieved this national recognition.

The status is earned by maintaining a minimum grade point of 3.5 (80 per cent) or better in their field of study at the University of Manitoba.

“We are so proud of our 123 Academic All Canadians! This is a record for Bison student-athletes — and these exceptional young women and men embody athletic and academic excellence and show what is possible through sustained effort,” said Gene Muller, Director of Athletics and Recreation.

“We congratulate them for this remarkable achievement. Success like this does not happen by accident and in isolation. Bison Sports is grateful to our coaches, professors, university administrators, parents, and friends for their support in achieving this record.”

Some highlights include 54 Bison student-athletes who had a 4.0 or higher mark (an A – 90%), making up 44 per cent of the total. Female athletes made up for 54 per cent (66 of 123) of this year’s list.

Since Academic All-Canadian stats were taken in 1990, 1,780 Bisons have earned the award.
