68 Foresters Named Academic All-Midwest Conference

The Midwest Conference announced its Academic All-MWC honorees for 2011-12 on Wednesday. Lake Forest College had 68 student-athletes in 13 sports listed.

A student-athlete must have earned a minimum grade point average of 3.33 for the academic year to be eligible for the award. This marks a change from the previous criteria, which was a 3.2 cumulative grade point average and at least sophomore standing. Individuals are now able to earn the award four times in their career, provided they meet the minimum grade point average each year.

Lake Forest's 68 Academic All-MWC honorees are the most in school history, surpassing the record of 63 set in 2010-11. All 13 sports that compete in the conference had at least one honoree, led by football with 11. The women's swimming & diving team was next and had the highest percentage of members listed with 10 of 21 athletes earning the award.
