ATTLEBORO, Mass. – For the second-straight year, Southern Vermont College saw a record-breaking number of its student-athletes earn New England Collegiate Conference Spring All-Academic honors with 19 making it to the list for 2018 as announced by the league on Monday.

Members of the NECC’s winter and spring teams were eligible for the accolade. To earn the laurel, student-athletes must be a sophomore or higher in academic standing and post a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.40 following the spring semester.

"It was a rewarding spring semester for our coaches, faculty, administrators, and staff—who all pitch in to support student-athletes academically,” said Jeb Gorham, Southern Vermont’s faculty athletics representative. “Seeing a record-breaking 19 student-athletes with cumulative GPA’s of 3.40 or higher shows how SVC is dedicated to student-athlete academic well-being and how our student-athletes make a choice to perform both on the field and in the classroom. On behalf of the faculty and academic staff at the College, I want to congratulate our Academic All-Conference student-athletes and encourage them to continue to make SVC proud."

Of the 19 Mountaineers picking up the spring honor, eight are collecting it for the second time in their career. Another three SVC student-athletes are having their classroom success recognized once again after they were previously named to a fall academic all-conference squad while the remaining eight are first-time honorees; of that latter group, one Mountaineer was a senior, one was a junior, and six were sophomores.

Nine of the 16 majors offered by Southern Vermont were represented on the spring listing with radiologic sciences leading the way as five students from the program earned the decoration. The McCormick Division of Business and the Division of Nursing & Health Sciences tied for the most honorees with eight apiece.

In total, 142 student-athletes from around the Conference garnered the 2018 spring accolade.
