Buena Vista University landed 25 student-athletes on the 2016 Fall Academic All-IIAC Team which was recently released by the league office.
The Beaver women's golf team highlights the list as it had five of its golfers earn recognition. That total was the highest among all other IIAC women's golf programs. The women's soccer team had eight selections which was the third-highest while football also landed five.
To eligible for Academic All-IIAC honors, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore in academic standing with at least one full year at his/her current school. The student-athlete must also be a member of the varsity team of his/her sport.
This year's total was eight higher than BVU had a year ago. A total of 424 student-athletes were recognized across the league's eight fall championship sports.
