One student-athlete joins the Academic All-MAC team for the second consecutive year. Eastern Michigan's Leah Hashimoto was also named to the 2003 Academic All-MAC team.
Three student-athletes honored for their academic achievements also received All-MAC status in 2004. Central Michigan's Kara Reighard and Kent State's Earline Feugill were first-team All-MAC honorees, while Hashimoto received second-team All-MAC accolades.
Rounding out the 2004 Academic All-MAC team are Ball State's Courtney Vojtasek and Northern Illinois' Ashlee Williams.
