2012 Patriot Leageu Men's Cross Country Academic Honor Roll
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Eighty-eight Patriot League men's cross country student-athletes made the sport's Academic Honor Roll for the fall semester, it was announced on Wednesday.
Bucknell led all schools with 18 student-athletes on the list, while Lehigh (15), Navy (12), American (11), Colgate (11) and Holy Cross (10) also had double-digit representation.
The honorees included seven of the eight student-athletes who made the Men's Cross Country Academic All-Patriot League Team in November. Among that group was Navy senior Chris Galvin, a Mechanical Engineering major and the 2012 Patriot League Men's Cross Country Scholar-Athlete of the Year who posted a 4.00 grade-point average in the fall semester. Galvin was one of four to record a 4.00 GPA in the fall semester. He was joined by sophomore teammate Drew Calcagno, an Economics major, Army junior Economics major Kendall Ward and Lehigh freshman Engineering major Evan Hardy.
Seven student-athletes who earned All-Patriot League status at the 2012 Cross Country Championships garnered a spot on the Academic Honor Roll, including individual champion Chris Johnson (Colgate) and fellow first-team honorees Mark Allen (American), John Dugan (Bucknell) and John Sweeney (Navy).
Johnson was one of five student-athletes who made the Men's Cross Country Academic Honor Roll for the fourth time. He was joined in that group by teammate Christopher Wendt, American's Zach Weinstein, Bucknell's D.J. Krystek and Lafayette's Dayne Mosconi.
To be eligible for the Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average in the fall semester and participate in one of the Patriot League's seven fall championship sports.
