While college athletic seasons have ended, the DePaul Blue Demons are still winning awards, this time for their academic accomplishments. On Tuesday, seven DePaul teams earned BIG EAST Team Academic Excellence Awards.
The awards recognize the top team grade-point averages in the league. DePaul teams honored were women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s soccer, women’s tennis, men’s indoor track and field, and men’s outdoor track and field.
In comparison, the schools earning the next highest number of awards — Notre Dame, Seton Hall and Syracuse — each had three teams honored.
Congrats to the Blue Demons, who bring their A-game to the field, court, track — and their books!
