CHENEY — A total of 90 Eastern Washington University student-athletes across golf, men’s and women’s tennis, and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field have earned a spot on the Big Sky Conference All-Big Sky Spring Academic Team as announced July 14.
Women’s outdoor track and field had the most selections with 38, while men’s outdoor track and field had 31 selections. Both men’s and women’s tennis (8) and golf (5) placed their entire roster on the list.
Among those selected were Medical Lake High School alum Dawson Lack. A member of the Eagle men’s track and field team, the junior seeking a master’s of business administration posted a GPA of 3.93.
Lack was a member of the 4x100 relay team that finished in first place at the Big Sky Championships with a time of 40.74 seconds, third-best in EWU outdoor track and field history.
For the 2020-21 season, and following changes voted on by the league’s Athletic Directors, a student-athlete must have met/or exceeded the following minimum requirements: 1) Be on an active roster for their institution; 2) Achieved a 3.2 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at the conclusion of the most recently completed term; 3) Completed at least one academic term at his/her current Big Sky institution.
These requirements were adjusted from a standard model that included a minimum of playing time for the student-athlete, as well as the academic requirement. The change was made due to the unique nature of the 2020-21 athletic calendar and the challenges facing campuses both in the classroom and on the playing surface.
The complete list of Eastern’s 2020-21 All-Big Sky Spring Academic Team is below. The fall and winter all-academic teams were released previously this week.
