CAMBRIDGE, Mass.— The University of New Hampshire athletic department had 82 student athletes named to the America East Conference’s Academic Honor Roll last week.
Students had to earn grade point averages of 3.0 or higher to receive this recognition. Of those student-athletes, 274 earned Commissioner’s Honor Roll status for completing the fall semester with grade point averages of 3.5 or higher.
UNH was tied for second in the conference for number of athletes receiving recognition. The Wildcats were ranked fifth in percentage of student-athletes honored.
America East is proud to have one of most comprehensive academic awards programs in the country. In addition to the honor roll, an All-Academic team comprised of student-athletes that excel both academically and athletically is chosen in each of the conference’s 21 sports by a committee consisting of faculty athletic representatives, academic advisors and sports information directors. Additionally, a scholar-athlete, someone who distinguishes themselves as the top student-athlete in their sport, is awarded. From that group, one male and one female is selected the America East Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The fall scholar-athletes will be named on Thursday, February 12.
