BLC Academic All Conference Honors

Bethany Lutheran College Athletics competes in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC). The Conference recently released the names of thirty-nine Bethany athletes who earned the distinction of Academic All-Conference in their respective sports during the winter and spring sport seasons. The UMAC also awards team grade point average (GPA) awards for each sport the Conference sponsors. Bethany’s men’s track and field team won top honors for all UMAC member schools with a 3.174 team GPA. Congratulations to each of the Bethany athletes earning Academic All Conference awards and the men’s track and field team for their performance not only on the track, but also in the classroom.
