ADA — A school record 74 Ohio Northern student/athletes were named Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference in the six fall sports for 2022.

The ONU football and men's cross country teams set school records with its number of Academic All-OAC honorees.

Football had a league-best 23 players named Academic All-OAC, men's cross country led all schools with 15 award winners and men's soccer topped the league with 11 honorees.

Northern's women's soccer team had 13 honorees, women's cross country had seven and volleyball had five.

The award winners must be a sophomore or higher in class standing, maintain varsity status and have a cumulative grade-point-average of at least 3.50.

Eleven award winners were making their maximum third appearance on the list.

Forty-one of the 74 have earned the honor for the first time.

Ohio Northern's 74 honorees ranked first in the 10-team league, edging John Carroll (69) and Mount Union (66) for the most award winners.

It was also five more than the school record of 69 Academic All-OAC honorees ONU had last fall.

Below is a complete listing of Ohio Northern student-athletes who earned the honor. The asterisk symbol denotes the number of years each student-athlete has been named Academic All-Conference.
