Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten conference released its Fall 2016 Academic All-Conference Team, totaling 1,007 student-athletes across seven sports. 78 Penn State student-athletes earned the honor, which is given to students who are letterwinners in at least their second academic year, and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

For Penn State, the breakdown by sport is as follows:

  • Field Hockey - 16
  • Football - 19
  • Men’s Cross Country - 1
  • Women’s Cross Country - 7
  • Men’s Soccer - 13
  • Women’s Soccer - 14
  • Women’s Volleyball - 8

One Penn State student-athlete currently has a perfect 4.0 GPA - senior Cara Ulizio of the Women’s Cross Country team, who is majoring in Supply Chain Management.

Congratulations to Cara and all of our student-athlete honorees!
