DSU Has School Record MEAC All-Academic Scholars



Most of the DSU student-athlete scholars that have been named on the MEAC All-Academic Team are shown in this photo taken during a Hornet basketball doubleheader in March.


A school-record 98 DSU student-athletes have been recognized by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for their work in the classroom and named on the conference’s All-Academic Team. 
The MEAC recently revised its original 2010 Commissioner's All-Academic Team, which originally had DSU as having the most non-freshmen student-athletes with a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.0 or higher.
As a result of the revision, it was determined that Howard University had a few addition student athletes that met the MEAC All-Academic criteria, which pushed that school above DSU by two student-athletes.
A total of 613 student-athletes from the league's 12 schools met the criteria during the 2009-10 academic year. As a result of the MEAC revision, Delaware State is second among the schools with a school-record 98 scholar athletes. Howard University topped the list with 100.
"I'm extremely proud of our exceptional student-athletes for their outstanding work in the classroom," said DSU Director of Athletics Derek Carter. "The academic success of our student-athletes is a credit to their hard work, along with the commitment of their parents, university administration, faculty and coaches to academic and athletic excellence."
Delaware State has placed 75-or-more student-athletes on the MEAC Commissioner's All-Academic list for the fifth straight year. Last year, DSU topped the conference with 78 honorees.  During the 2007-08 academic year, a league-high 82 Delaware State student-athletes were recognized.
