SVC has 13 on academic honor list
BENNINGTON >> The New England Collegiate Conference announced on Wednesday its 2015 Fall Academic All-conference list with 13 of the honored student-athletes hailing from Southern Vermont College.
Members of the Conference's men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, men's golf, field hockey, women's tennis and women's volleyball teams who are of sophomore or higher academic standing were eligible to collect the academic accolade. Those athletes must have posted at least a 3.40 grade point average after the fall semester to earn their way onto the list.
"Students at SVC are used to academic challenge and pushing through to success in situations that require intelligence, determination, and resilience," commented Southern Vermont Provost Jay White. "The 13 SVC students being named to the NECC Fall All-Academic team are testament to this — marvelous examples of intelligence and strength and stamina in the classroom and on the field or court of competition. We, their SVC family, are proud of them and delight in this important NECC recognition that celebrates the best of those who are our student-athletes."
All five of Southern Vermont's fall sports were represented by members on this year's fall team with 11 of those 13 Mountaineers garnering the fall academic accolade for at least the second time in their respective careers.
Among those SVC student-athletes to pick up the fall honor once again are five seniors who are taking it home for the third time, the most possible in a collegiate career: men's cross country captain Cameron Michael Curtiss, men's soccer's Sean Deegan, and women's soccer's Rachel Cudo, Katelyn Raymond and Abigail Rosas.
