Thirty-Three UMass Dartmouth Student-Athletes Named LEC Spring All-Academic

DARTMOUTH, Mass. – Thirty-three University of Massachusetts Dartmouth student-athletes from seven sports were recognized earlier this month, as the Little East Conference announced its 2016 Spring All-Academic Teams. 

In the wake of the institution’s 2016 Commencement, an additional 193 student-athletes earned academic distinction in the 2016 spring semester, including 138 Dean’s List (3.2 to 3.8 grade point average) and 55 Chancellor’s List (3.8 grade point average or higher) honorees. The Chancellor’s List total is a new all-time high, surpassing the fall semester total of 54.

In order to be named a Little East Conference All-Academic honoree, student-athletes in the league’s sponsored spring sports must post a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or higher through the spring semester. The student-athlete must also be at least a sophomore academically and athletically, a full-time member of their varsity sport and have been enrolled at their institution for a full academic year.
