GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – A school-record 27 Bryn Athyn College student-athletes were honored for their success in the classroom, having been named North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Scholar-Athletes for the 2016-17 year.
Men's lacrosse led the way for the Lions with four student-athletics earning NEAC Scholar-Athlete recognition. Women's lacrosse and men's soccer both had three honorees, while women's soccer; women's tennis; and women's volleyball all had two. Men's basketball and women's cross country recorded one scholar-athlete each.
Nine Lions were named NEAC Scholar-Athletes and played multiple sports during the 2016-17 season.
Christian Blair, Miranda Hyatt, Austin Nyekan, and Marin Roth garnered NEAC Scholar-Athlete honors for the third time in their career. Michelle Bedford, Alair Brock, Alex Hyatt, Brennen Keck-McCurdy, Shane McCurdy, and Amber Wood are two-time NEAC Scholar-Athletes.
The 27 scholar-athletes this year breaks the previous record of 26 which occurred in 2014-15.
In order to be selected, a student-athlete competing in a conference-sponsored sport must achieve a combined grade point average of 3.4 or higher for the fall and spring semesters and must have been in good standing on his or her team.
