NEWARK, Del. -- A total of 207 University of Delaware student-athletes have been selected to the Colonial Athletic Association Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll for the 2011-12 athletics season.
Nearly 40 percent of UD student-athletes earned a spot on the team, which recognizes outstanding work in the classroom. To be eligible, student-athletes must post a 3.2 or better grade point average either for the semester in which they competed or as a cumulative index. Student-athletes receive certificates from the CAA for their accomplishment.
All 20 Blue Hen teams that compete in the CAA (women’s indoor track & field is an independent) were represented by at least two award recipients with women’s outdoor track & field earning 35 citations followed by football with 25, women’s rowing with 21, and women’s cross country with 21.
Teams having at least 50 percent of their roster honored were women’s cross country (70 percent), volleyball (69 percent), women’s outdoor track & field (59 percent), men’s golf (50 percent), rowing (50 percent), and women’s tennis (50 percent).
Among those Delaware student-athletes posting a perfect 4.0 grade point average for their semester of competition were Chad Davis (football), Polly Reinicker (women’s soccer), Jessie Ermak (women’s cross country and women’s outdoor track & field), Greg Matthias (men’s golf), Kelvin McNeil (men’s basketball), Rachael Conway (rowing), Lauren Kolsky (rowing), Ursa Remondi (women’s swimming), Aretah Ettarh (women’s outdoor track & field), and Lindsay Prettyman (women’s outdoor track & field).
