Academics have long been a success in Dubuque under JoAnne Gibson who has been with the team since 2010. Since the USHL began the All-Academic Team in 2016-17, the Fighting Saints have grabbed 15 of the 40 (37.5%) total academic team nominations, including having multiple players make the academic team for six consecutive years. No other team in the USHL has accomplished that feat once.

"In Dubuque, we take academics very serious. Providing a top notch academic support system for our players is a priority and a core value of the organization. Lucas' academic track record speaks for itself. Just like on the ice, his focus and dedication to learn and improve is impressive. We are proud of him being named the USHL Scholar-Athlete of the Year."
