BROCKPORT, NY -- The Empire Collegiate Wrestling Conference (ECWC) officially published its annual list of All-Academic Team selections for the 2019-20 season on Friday afternoon. The conference honored 56 wrestlers in this season's release, marking the second consecutive year that the All-Academic Team topped the 50-mark.

Brockport posted six wrestlers on the list in 2019-20. Representing the Golden Eagles were: Sam Grey, Austin Reed, Nick Robbins, Kole Taylor, Matt Caccamise, and John Cantwell. Reed, Cantwell and Taylor are now two-time recipients of the prestigious all-academic award.
