Several Redhawk teams were honored recently by coaches associations for their outstanding performances in the classroom last school year.

SEMO's men's and women's track and field teams claimed U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic honors for the 2019-20 school year. SEMO's women's team recorded a 3.60 grade point average, while the men's team accumulated a 3.13 GPA. In addition, Logan Blomquist was named an All-Academic Athlete.

The SEMO Volleyball team was among a record 1,313 winners to earn an American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2019-20 academic year.

The Redhawks accumulated a 3.44 cumulative grade point average with two student-athletes earning a 4.0. It was the 13th consecutive year that the SEMO Volleyball program has earned the distinguished honor.

And most recently, the Redhawks Tennis team earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athlete and All-Academic Team honors for the 2020 campaign.

SEMO accumulated a 3.88 cumulative grade point average with all student-athletes on the team garnering ITA Scholar-Athlete accolades.

These honors come on the heels of a spring semester where Redhawk student-athletes earned a cumulative 3.53 grade point average combined, which set an all-time department record.
