Several area natives from the MIAC earned Academic All-Conference distinction from their winter and spring seasons.

In order to qualify for Academic All-MIAC status, student-athletes must be sophomores, juniors, or seniors by academic standards with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. Athletically, winter team sport student-athletes must have competed in 50% of their team’s regular-season varsity contests. In addition, hockey goalies must have played in one-third of their team’s total minutes played for the regular season. Swimming and diving competitors must have placed in the top 16 of an individual event or relay at the 2020 MIAC Championships to be eligible. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic canceling the 2020 spring season, the athletic requirement for spring sport student-athletes was waived this year.
