To earn the distinction, a team needs to have a cumulative GPA of 3.10 or higher. A total of 64 men’s teams and 111 women’s teams were recognized.

The Mule teams combined to place 15 members on the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll in 2011 and had two Academic All-Americans, including the Academic All-America of the Year.

Academic success is a longstanding tradition for the Muhlenberg track program. The women have been named an All-Academic Team every year since 2001, and the men nine times in that span.
