More than 200 East Carolina University student-athletes were named to this year’s American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team announced Commissioner Mike Aresco on Thursday afternoon.

Leading the pack were the entire team rosters of the Pirates’ women’s tennis and golf squads.

Nominations for the team are submitted by each of the American’s member institutions. To be eligible for the honor, a nominee must have competed in a conference-sponsored sport, attained a minimum grade-point average of 3.00 for the preceding academic year and completed a minimum of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters of academic work, with a total of 18 semester or 27 quarter credits not including remedial courses.

In addition to the women’s golf and tennis teams having all of their members on the list, the ECU men’s golf, women’s soccer and women’s swimming and diving squads added more than 84 percent of their rosters to the list. The baseball, men’s tennis and softball teams each placed more than 70 percent of their respective student-athletes on the team, while 13 of East Carolina’s 17 athletics programs had 50 percent or more of their roster named to the squad.

The nominations are reviewed and approved by the American Athletic Conference Academic Affairs Committee. There are a conference-record 2,417 honorees for the 2016-17 academic year.

Connecticut had 272 selections – the most of any AAC institution. Cincinnati followed with 271, while ECU ranked third with 220 student-athletes on the list.
