All 11 of UMSL’s sports teams were represented on the team with baseball contributing the most student-athletes at 11. Women’s basketball and women’s soccer each accounted for eight student-athletes on the team.
Twenty-nine student-athletes were repeat recipients for this award, having been named at least once before during their career. And 10 UMSL seniors on the team also received the prestigious GLVC Council of President’s Academic Excellence Award.
