While Rensselaer’s winter sports teams have wrapped up their seasons, accolades and honors keep pouring in.
The 2007-08 Liberty League Winter All-Academic Team includes 62 Rensselaer student-athletes. Overall, Rensselaer’s student-athletes had a tremendous semester academically, posting an average grade point average of 3.11 for the fall 2007 semester.
And for the 12th straight semester, Rensselaer’s student-athletes out-performed the school’s non-student-athletes, who had an average semester grade point average of 3.05.
ECAC Hockey has announced its members of the 2008 Women’s All-Academic Team and a league-high 21 Rensselaer student-athletes have been recognized, including 11 who are making their second straight appearances on the list.
“It’s an honor to lead our league in All-Academic selections this season,” said head coach John Burke.
“I think it’s a real testament to the balance of excellence, both in the classroom and on the ice, that we strive for here at Rensselaer.”
