COLUMBUS, Ohio – A program-record 29 men’s lacrosse student-athletes have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors for 2019-20, the conference office announced today.

To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher.

Among the student-athletes who have now earned Academic All-Big Ten honors multiple times in their careers are Colby Barker (sport industry), Lukas Buckley (business finance), J.T. Bugliosi (finance), Omari DeBerry (sport industry), Jeff Henrick (sport industry), Griffin Hughes (communications), Justin Inacio (biology), Josh Kirson (finance), Tre Leclaire (sport industry), Caleb Mahoney (civil engineering), Jed Manning (finance), Nick Musci (finance), Evan Riss (finance), Joey Salisbury (accounting), Colby Smith (biology) and Ryan Terefenko (sport industry).

The Buckeyes’ 29 scholar-athletes caps off what was a stellar year in the classroom for the Scarlet and Gray.
