Blackford had eight student-athletes make All-Academic All-CIC honors this year.
To qualify one must be a junior or senior, letter in a varsity sport, and be ranked in the Top 5 of their class.
Those qualifying this year were: Kaleigh Clevenger, Jenna Keplinger, Ashley Willmann, Jacob Clamme, Straton Stone, Myles Cline, Spencer Blakely, and Calista Johns.
“I am proud to have so many honored this year. This is the most we have had in a while. It says a lot about the ability of these young men and women to balance their studies and sports,” said athletic director Tony Uggen. “There all great kids and represented us very well.”
