Gabi Razma Makes History with 2nd Academic All-American Honor

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology graduate Gabi Razma became the first female multi-sport Academic All-American in school history, earning second-team honors on the Google Cloud Academic All-America Team released Tuesday.

Razma was previously a first-team Academic All-American in volleyball in 2017.  The effort marks the first time in Rose-Hulman history that a female student-athlete has earned Academic All-American honors in multiple sports.

The Google Cloud Academic All-America Team includes three teams of 15 honorees, from the more than 300 NCAA Division III institutions that offer the sport of women's track and field. 

Rose-Hulman student-athletes have now combined for 133 Academic All-American awards, including 33 consecutive years with at least one Academic All-American.  The 33-year streak ranks sixth among all NCAA institutions and first in NCAA Division III. Razma is also the sixth women's track and field team member to earn Academic All-American honors in Rose-Hulman history.

Rose-Hulman's combined Academic All-America total ranks No. 10 nationally among NCAA Division III institutions and in the top 30 among all United States colleges. 

Razma completed one of the most decorated careers in Rose-Hulman women's sports history this season.  The standout was a two-time Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Most Valuable Player in two sports, earning Volleyball Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2014 and 2017, Indoor Field Athlete of the Year accolades in 2018, and Outdoor Field Athlete of the Year honors in 2018.

Her track and field career included 17 HCAC championships, including seven individual titles in the triple jump.  She also claimed four individual championships in the 4-x-400 meter relay, three titles in the 4-x-200 meter relay, two 400-meter individual titles, and the 2018 outdoor javelin championship.  Most importantly, her efforts helped Rose-Hulman sweep the 2018 HCAC Indoor and Outdoor team championships.

Razma's career also includes six school records (javelin, indoor and outdoor triple jump; 4-x-200 indoors; 4-x-400 indoors; 4-x-400 outdoors).  She is a five-time all-region honoree and earned Academic All-District honors for the third consecutive year.

In volleyball, Razma capped her career as a four-time first-team all-HCAC selection and a two-time HCAC Defensive Most Valuable Player.  She holds the Rose-Hulman single-game (46) and career (2,655) school records for digs. 

In the classroom, Razma completed her undergraduate degree in May with a 3.97 grade point average as a biomedical engineering major.  She was also named Rose-Hulman's top class of 2018 biomedical engineering graduate.
