The DII ADA Academic Achievement Awards is a program that recognizes the academic accomplishments of student-athletes at the Division II level.
To receive the honor, a student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale, have completed a minimum of two years (six quarters or four semesters) of college level work, and been an active member of an intercollegiate team during his/her last academic year.
Leading the Vikings for the third straight year was men's cross country and track and field senior Trevor Robinson (Seattle/Nathan Hale), a Planning and Environmental Policy major who posted a 3.99 GPA.
