SIRC (Sport Information Resource Centre) and the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) are proud to announce the 2010-2011 SIRC-CCAA Academic All-Canadian Award recipients. This year, 143 student-athletes from across the nation have achieved combined excellence in collegiate athletics and academics, an increase from 119 recipients in the 2009-2010 season.
The SIRC-CCAA Academic All Canadian Award is the CCAA's most prestigious student-athlete award, epitomizing the CCAA's mandate of recognizing excellence in academics and athletics. To achieve this award, a student-athlete must be named to his/her respective PCAA All-Star teams (1st and 2nd) in a CCAA Sport, and must achieve honours standing at their Institution.
Among this year's award winners are third-year Camosun College Chargers basketball student-athletes Blake Mansbridge (Nanaimo) and Chelsea McMullen (Prince George).
Mansbridge completed the 2010-2011 season with a total of 285 points, averaging 16.8 point per game which ranked him sixth overall in the league. The 6'2" guard earned a BCCAA 2nd Team All-Star for his outstanding performance while posting top grades in Camosun's Associate of Arts Degree program.
Chelsea McMullen from the Chargers women's basketball team also earned academic honours as a second-year student in Camosun's Sport Management Diploma program. While scoring big points in the classroom, the 5'11" wing/point collected her second career BCCAA 1st Team All-Star averaging of 20.5 points and 7.44 rebounds per game. McMullen ended the season ranked second overall in points and seventh in rebounds.
"To achieve excellence in both sport and academics requires tremendous skill, dedication and perseverance," said Debra Gassewitz, President and CEO of SIRC. "SIRC is honoured to recognize these outstanding collegiate student-athletes who are also passionate about excelling in their education."
"The CCAA is committed to academic success and athletic achievement," stated Sandra Murray-MacDonell, CCAA Executive Director. "We are very proud to recognize and celebrate those student-athletes who've attained the highest possible CCAA honour in their pursuit of academic and athletic excellence."
