On the track, Hillsdale College's teams enjoyed tremendous success in 2017-18. That level of achievement carried over into the classroom for both programs.
A total of 15 individuals - four male, 11 female - as well as both teams earned Scholar All-American honors from the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
Men's athletes who got individual recognition were: Joseph Humes, Nathan Jones, Konnor Maloney and Adam Wade.
Individuals eligible for this award were selected as the highest-finishing performers at the NCAA Division II Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field Championships who achieved All-Academic status. Those athletes who won individual NCAA titles ranked higher in the tie-breaking process and cumulative GPA is weighed as the final advantage.
Teams who were recognized must finish highly at the national championships meet and have at least a 3.00 cumulative team GPA. Standards for these awards are established by the USTFCCCA.
