COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College had 190 student-athletes qualify for the Northeast-10 Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll for the spring semester, including five that posted a 4.0 grade-point average last semester.
Saint Michael's was fifth among the league's 16 institutions in total honorees, and tied for seventh by having 54 percent of its NE-10 student-athletes land on the Commissioner's Honor Roll. Student-athletes that earn a minimum 3.0 GPA during a given semester are eligible for the accolade. Eighteen of the Purple Knights' squads compete in the NE-10.
Four of the five 4.0 student-athletes repeated a feat they turned in the fall. Recent men's lacrosse graduate Garrett Clark (Hingham, Mass./Hingham), rising women's basketball senior Megan Olsen (Glenmont, N.Y./Bethlehem Central), rising women's soccer senior Ali Lajoie (Litchfield, N.H./Campbell) and rising softball junior Amanda Brigante (Colchester, Vt./Colchester) were repeat qualifiers. Recent women's swimming & diving graduate Kaytlyn Kelley (Jefferson, Mass./Wachusett Regional) also recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA in the spring.
The women's cross country program topped Saint Michael's with 22 honorees, a figure good for second in the NE-10 among women's cross country teams. With eight qualifiers, women's tennis tied for the league high in its sport, while women's basketball had 11, just one short of the conference leader.
