PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League has announced the names of 80 student-athletes – including 10 from Harvard – who have been selected to the 2020 Spring Academic All-Ivy League team.
The goal of Academic All-Ivy is to properly honor top student-athletes in the three sports seasons (fall, winter and spring). For each sports season, each Ivy institution nominates 10 student-athletes – five men and five women – with grade point averages of 3.00 or higher. These student-athletes must be a starter or key reserve on an officially sponsored varsity sport.
