A record number of student-athletes from Cal State LA’s five fall sports programs earned conference academic honors, the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) announced this week.

The CCAA named 35 Golden Eagle student-athletes to the 2020 Fall Academic Honor Roll, which celebrates outstanding academic performance by student-athletes at the conference’s 12 member schools.
