The Elgin Community College athletic programs had 39 student-athletes earn Academic All-Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) honors for the 2022-23 academic year.

Students with a 3.0 or higher grade point average are eligible to receive the recognition. Academic All-Conference first-year recipients must have at least 24 credit hours, while the Dick Durrant second-year honorees must have 48 or more accumulated credits.

“There’s never a moment when we aren’t encouraging our student-athletes to strive in their academics,” said Kent Payne, athletic director. “Our entire department and coaching staff know that being a student comes first, so we consistently remind them of ECC's many resources to help them balance school and their sport. Just as much as we celebrate their success on the field, we celebrate their success in the classroom.”
