71 UPEI student-athletes achieve Academic All-Canadian status

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

U SPORTS, the national governing body of university sports in Canada, gives special recognition to student-athletes across the country with an academic standing of 80 per cent or better. UPEI is proud to announce 71 of its 179 student athletes in the 2016–17 season have been named U SPORTS Academic All-Canadians. That’s 40 per cent of the student-athlete population, and one of the top rates of Academic All-Canadians at universities in the country.

UPEI student-athletes strive for excellence in sport, academics, and in the greater community. This level of academic achievement speaks volumes about their work ethic and the quality of our coaches, faculty, staff, and varsity programs.

Congratulations to our Academic All-Canadians! Go Panthers Go!
