30 Mariner Student-Athletes Earn Fall Academic Honors From ECAC

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Jan. 26, 2018) – On Thursday, the Eastern College Athletic Conference announced the Fall 2017 Academic Honor Rolls and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy had a total of 30 student-athletes recognized for their excellent performances in the classroom. 

The ECAC Academic Honor Roll is split into two tiers. The Academic Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who achieved a 3.2-3.59 GPA on a 4.0 scale, and have completed one full academic year at their current institution. The second tier, the President's Honor Roll, recognizes student-athletes who have a GPA of 3.6 or better and have completed a full academic year at their institution. 

All four fall sports (men's cross country, women's cross country, football and women's volleyball) had at least one student-athlete represented on the honor rolls.
