Patriot League Field Hockey Academic Honor Roll
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - All seven schools were well-represented as Patriot League field hockey teams combined to place 87 student-athletes on the sport's Academic Honor Roll for their performance in the fall semester.
American led all schools with 18 honorees as each institution had a double-digit total of Academic Honor Roll recipients. Bucknell was next with 14 student-athletes on the list, followed by Lafayette with 12, Boston University, Colgate and Holy Cross all with 11 and Lehigh with 10.
Each of the 11 student-athletes named to the Field Hockey Academic All-Patriot League squad also received a spot on the Academic Honor Roll, including Bucknell senior Management major and 2013 Patriot League Field Hockey Scholar-Athlete of the Year Rachel Misko. Twenty of the 24 All-Patriot League selections were named to the Academic Honor Roll.
American senior Jaclyn Anspach, a Health Promotion major, earned a 4.00 grade-point average after also doing so while making last year's Patriot League Academic Honor Roll. Others who achieved a 4.00 GPA in the fall included Anspach's teammates, Stephanie Burry (Health Promotion), Jessica Lynn Davis (Business Administration) and Natalie Konerth (Biochemistry), as well as Boston University's Ally Alfonso (Human Physiology), Bucknell's Anna Wills (Undeclared) and Lafayette's Katelyn Arnold (Government & Law) and Aliza Furneaux (Chemistry)
Anspach, Burry and Misko were among a group of eight student-athletes who concluded their career by making the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in each of their four seasons. American's Alex McMackin, Bucknell's Erica Perrine, Colgate's Kelsey Jensen, Holy Cross' Lindsay MacPhail and Lafayette's Hanna Sotiropoulos also pulled off the feat.
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.
