Delaware Places 262 Student-Athletes on CAA Commissionerís Academic Honor Roll for 2015-16
RICHMOND -- A total of 262 University of Delaware student-athletes from fall, winter, and spring teams have earned spots on the 2015-16 Colonial Athletic Association Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll announced by the league office.
To be eligible, student-athletes must have been members of the team throughout the season and earned a 3.2 or greater grade point average for either their competition semester (fall for men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey, volleyball, and cross country; spring for all other sports) or for their cumulative careers.
The CAA Commissioner’s list does not include members of the football squad, which posted a school record 30 student-athletes on the CAA Academic All-Conference team that was announced separately in March.
The 292 honored by the CAA among all sports represents about 50 percent of the total student-athletes at Delaware. Additionally, a total of 16 Blue Hen programs had a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher during the 2015-16 academic year.
Highlighting the award recipients were 24 student-athletes who recorded perfect 4.0 grade point averages for the semester in which they were honored. That list included Justin Mitchell from men’s swimming and diving; Andrea Bannon, Lizzy Brixen, and Elizabeth Weglein from rowing; Leanna Gearhart from softball; Grace Chua and Emma Sills from women’s golf; Elyse Andrews, Devyn Heidelbaugh, and McKenzie Rafferty from women’s lacrosse; Natalie Ambrosey and Kristina Congdon from women’s swimming and diving; Denny LaMachia and Amanda Studnicki from women’s tennis; Gabby Alaimo, Ilana Schnaufer, Erin McCloskey, Lauren Zodl, and Jennifer Hineman from women’s cross country and track and field; Ben Sampson from men’s soccer; Kayla Devlin from field hockey; Riley Curtin, Gina Tricocci, and Natalie Zelenky from women’s soccer.
