Army senior Paul Strozier, the 2004 Men's Cross Country Scholar-Athlete of the Year, earned a 3.86 grade-point average (GPA) during the fall semester, while two men's runners took home perfect 4.00 GPAs in the opening term. They were among the 62 student-athletes named to the 2004 Patriot League Men's Cross Country Academic Honor Roll, announced today by Carolyn Schlie Femovich, Patriot League Executive Director.
Strozier has collected numerous academic honors in his seven semesters at the United States Military Academy, having been a member of the Dean's List in each of his semesters of attendance. He has also been named to the Patriot League Honor Roll all four of his years at the Academy. The Systems Engineering major was awarded the Superintendent's Wreath, an award given to cadets in recognition of a high GPA in his/her concentration.
The two-time All-Patriot League selection ran to a ninth place finish at the NCAA Northeast Regional this past season, coming in as the top finisher for Army at that competition. He was the Black Knights' highest individual finisher four times in 2004, including a season-high second place finish against archrival Navy with a season-best time of 25:06.2. The senior runner finished sixth at the 2004 Patriot League championship, for his second career All-League mention.
To be eligible for the Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average in the fall semester and be awarded a varsity letter in one of the seven League-sponsored fall championship sports.
A total of 502 student-athletes were named to the League's Fall Academic Honor Roll, including 20 with 4.00 GPAs. The Fall Academic Honor Roll includes the sports of men's and women's cross country, field hockey, football, men's and women's soccer and volleyball.
Bucknell led the way with 101 candidates on the League's Fall Academic Honor Roll. On the 2004 Men's Cross Country Academic Honor Roll, American earned top honors with 12 recipients, while Bucknell finished second with 11 selections.
