Total of 153 Saints Named to MAAC Academic Honor Roll

Aug. 2, 2017

LOUDONVILLE, NY -- Siena College student athletes capped another banner year in the classroom with the announcement that a total of 153 Saints had been named to the 2016-17 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Academic Honor Roll. Nearly 44% of Siena's 345 student athletes received recognition for maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or higher.

"We are extremely proud of the efforts of our student athletes with their academic pursuits," Associate Athletic Director and Senior Woman Administrator Lori Anctil said. "They understand and embrace the rich tradition of academic excellence that is expected of our Saints. We appreciate their hard work and passion for success."

A total of 2,273 student athletes from across the conference's membership were named to the 2016-17 MAAC Academic Honor Roll. To be eligible, a student athlete must hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or higher at the end of the most recent Spring 2017 semester. The MAAC Academic Honor Roll is open to both full-time and associate members in the MAAC, and all 24 sports that the conference sponsors were represented.

Nine of Siena's 22 Division I athletic programs had at least half of the student athletes on their respective 2016-17 rosters represented on the MAAC Academic Honor Roll, with women's swimming and diving leading the way with 17 total selections. Remarkably, all 20 student athletes on the 2016-17 women's swimming and diving roster each maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.17 or higher.

Siena's MAAC Academic Honor Roll selections highlight another exemplary academic year for the athletic department. Seventeen programs maintained cumulative GPA's of 3.0 or higher this past year, with student athletes accruing a 3.17 cumulative GPA overall for the second consecutive school year.

The women's tennis team -- which made history on the court by winning their first 15 matches en route to a MAAC Championship appearance -- excelled equally in the classroom by leading all Siena teams with a 3.63 cumulative GPA. All nine student athletes on the team each maintained a 3.0 GPA or better.

Additionally, a total of 26 Saints were named to the athletic department's 4.0 Club for achieving a perfect 4.0 GPA during either the Fall 2015 or Spring 2016 semesters, including eight who posted unblemished 4.0 GPAs both terms.
