Three Cheers! (times 33)
Ninety-nine BSU student-athletes have been honored by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) with selection to the league’s Fall 2013 All-Academic Team that was released by MASCAC Commissioner Angela Baumann.
Student-athletes that compete in championship varsity sports offered by each of the eight MASCAC institutions during the course of the recently completed fall 2013 academic semester and have achieved a 3.20 cumulative or semester-based grade point average during the semester are eligible for selection to the Fall All-Academic Team.
Westfield State University placed the most student-athletes on the Fall 2013 MASCAC All-Academic Team with 118, while BSU, Worcester State University (78) and Massachusetts Maritime Academy (67) followed.
"I want to congratulate all MASCAC schools on having such a tremendous number of student-athletes honored on the Fall MASCAC All-Academic Team," Commissioner Baumann said of this year’s squad.
"I could not be more proud of our student-athletes achievements in the classroom, competition sites as well as in the community," Baumann added. "It is with great pride that we are able to recognize such a significant number of our outstanding student-athletes."
The Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference, the nation’s oldest Division III men’s and women’s playing conference, has a rich and storied tradition of competitive success while celebrating excellence in the classroom. MASCAC member schools include Bridgewater State University, Fitchburg State University, Framingham State University, MCLA, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Salem State University, Westfield State University and Worcester State University. Two other institutions, the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Plymouth State University, are affiliate members of the conference in the sports of football and men’s ice hockey, while Western Connecticut State University joined the conference as an affiliate member in football beginning in 2013.
