Emma Schulz Repeats as First Team Academic All-American

06/30/2020 

SUNY Cortland junior women's gymnast Emma Schulz of Poughquag/Arlington, N.Y., has been selected as a 2019-20 Division III Women's At-Large First Team Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). She earned national first-team honors for the second straight year.

The women's at-large category for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors encompasses 14 sports: beach volleyball, bowling, crew/rowing, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming and diving, tennis, and water polo.

Schulz is a biology major who entered the 2020 spring semester with a 4.05 cumulative grade point average (converted to a 3.98 for CoSIDA voting purposes).

Schulz was both a National Collegiate Gymnastics Association (NCGA) and Women's Collegiate Gymnastics Association (WCGA) All-American this past season and was chosen as the East Region Gymnast of the Year by both organizations. She ranked first nationally in Division III on both balance beam (9.7938) and floor exercise (9.8375) based on Seasonal Average Score (SAS), which is calculated by the average of a gymnast's top four scores during the season. She tied her own school records this season with a 9.90 on floor and a 9.825 on beam. The NCGA East Region and National Championship meets were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a sophomore in 2019, Schulz won the Division III national title on floor exercise and tied for second nationally on balance beam at the NCGA Championships. As a freshman in 2018, Schulz earned All-America honors on balance beam with a tie for third place nationally.

Schulz is the seventh athlete in school history to earn two CoSIDA Academic All-America awards and the first to be a first-team selection twice. In all, Cortland athletes have earned a total of 36 Academic All-America awards, including 16 since 2011.
