The Blue Dragon men and women had a combined 14 individual 4.0 GPAs and 20 combined athletes earn spots on the Association's All-Scholar Team.
The Hutchinson teams had three two-time scholar All-Americans. Brendon Horyna and Maggie Lambert are two-time 4.0 scholar-athletes. Trey Teeter is a two-time scholar-athlete with GPAs of 3.79 and 3.73.
