Varsity Reds record high 42% Academic All Canadians

Varsity Reds record high 42% Academic All Canadians

The UNB Varsity Reds held a special presentation earlier today to celebrate the academic success of those student-athletes who achieved Canadian Interuniversity Sport Academic All-Canadian status for their work during the 2012-2013 academic year.

Each student-athlete was presented with an official certificate from Canadian Interuniversity Sport and a cheque from the University of New Brunswick.  Making the presentations were Dr. Wayne Albert, Dean, Faculty of Kinesiology and Dr. Tony Secco, Vice President-Academic.

Academic All Canadian status is achieved at UNB by obtaining an 80% average while participating as a varsity athlete.  At the end of the last academic year 88 student athletes out of 211were recognized by the CIS as Academic All Canadians at UNB.  This was a record high 42% percent for UNB since the inception of the program in 1990 and also represents one of the top percentages in Canada.  The CIS national average is 24%.

One of those Academic All Canadians, swimmer Monica MacDonald, was earlier named as one of the CIS "Top 8" Academic all Canadians out of more than 2600 from across the country. This was the fourth time in the last five years that a UNB student-athlete has received this distinction.

A very proud Director of Athletics, John Richard, referred to the Varsity Reds slogan "Champions of Academic and Athletic Excellence."

 "When you consider that last season we qualified and sent student-athletes to compete at seven national championships; when you consider our student-athletes captured multiple AUS championships and CIS gold medals; when you consider all that we do in the community; and now 41% named Academic All Canadians.  You can see we don't just judge ourselves on one or two aspects.  We hold ourselves accountable in the classroom, in the community and on the field of play."
