Students from each of Southern Maine's eight Little East Conference sponsored teams have representatives on the academic squad: men's cross country, women's cross country, field hockey, golf, men's soccer, women's soccer, women's tennis and women's volleyball.

To earn the distinguished award, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore in standing both academically and athletically, have on cumulative GPA of 3.30 or higher through the previous semester, and have been at their current institution for at least one full academic year.

"Speaking on behalf of the entire Department of Athletics, we are exceptionally proud of our student-athletes and their ability to excel academically and athletically while navigating unique and challenging circumstances related to COVID-19," said USM Director of Athletics Al Bean.  "The rigorous academic responsibilities and the commitment and challenges of being a student-athlete are not easily balanced, and to excel at this task speaks to the quality of character that is representative of USM student-athletes.  I extend my congratulations and thank you to each of these students for wearing their Husky uniform with outstanding character, academic and athletic distinction."
