DARTMOUTH, Mass. – Sixty-eight UMass Dartmouth student-athletes have been recognized in the past week as conference Fall All-Academic Team honorees, as the Little East Conference (LEC) and Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) released their lists of recipients from 2016 fall sponsored sports.
In addition, 50 Corsairs were tabbed to the institution’s Chancellor’s List for the fall semester (3.8 grade point average or higher) and a record 174 to the Dean’s List (3.2 to 3.6 grade point average) for a record total of 224. The total number of student-athletes honored by the institution easily tops the previous high total of 197 reached last fall.
“We are very proud of the accomplishments our teams continue to achieve in the classroom,” said Corsairs’ Director of Athletics Amanda J. Van Voorhis. “It's exemplary that 46.3% of our student-athletes earned academic distinction and an indication that we are holding true to the NCAA Division III philosophy".
Eight sports were recognized between the two leagues, with seven primary LEC sports and football as a MASCAC affiliate. In order to be recognized as All-Academic in the LEC, student-athletes in sponsored fall sports must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 or higher through the 2015 spring semester. The individual must also be at least a sophomore academically and athletically, a full-time member of their varsity sport and have been enrolled for a full academic year.
In order to qualify for the MASCAC All-Academic team, football student-athletes must have achieved at least a 3.20 cumulative or semester-based grade point average during the first semester of the 2015-16 academic year.
