INDIANAPOLIS – Twenty-nine Hanover College spring student-athletes were recognized by the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Wednesday, May 15, for their efforts in the classroom.

From the 10 conference institutions, 246 student-athletes qualified for the Tom Bohlsen Academic All-Conference award, which requires a student, who is at least a sophomore academically, to have a minimum of a 3.50 cumulative grade-point average (GPA). Of Hanover's 29 student-athletes being honored, eight are coming from the women's track & field team, the most of any spring program. Men's track & field had seven honorees for the most on the men's side. Softball also had seven award winners, while baseball, men's golf, men's tennis and women's lacrosse all received recognition as well.

The award recognizes the contributions of Bohlsen, a 1957 graduate of Hanover College, who served as the first commissioner of the HCAC from 1998 through 2008. Combining the fall, winter and spring winners, Hanover had 84 recipients for the 2018-19 academic year.
