As selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA)
The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) annually selects Academic All-America® Teams in 12 programs — football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, and volleyball in the fall, men’s basketball and women’s basketball in the winter, baseball, softball, men’s track/cross country, and women’s track/cross country as well as men’s at-large sports and women’s at-large sports in the spring. At-large sports include crew, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, and water polo.
First-team, second-team and third-team are selected in both the University (NCAA Div. I and I-AA) and College (NCAA Div. II and III, and NAIA) Divisions, with a change made in 2011 to separate NCAA Division II and III. Football consists of just first- and second-teams. The Academic All-American® Teams are currently sponsored by Capital One — previous sponsors include GTE, Verizon and ESPN The Magazine.
All-time, Wittenberg student-athletes have earned 44 Academic All-America awards, putting the Tigers in the top 16% across all 1,012 schools who have ever had a student honored.
