On Thursday, East Coast Conference Commissioner, Dr. Robert Dranoff, announced the list of student-athletes that have been named to the ECC Commissioner's Honor Roll for the 2017-2018 academic year.
St. Thomas Aquinas College had 108 student-athletes honored by the conference. To be eligible for the ECC Commissioner's Honor Roll, those selected must have met or exceeded a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25.
A total of 1,336 student-athletes were named to the Honor Roll this year, a new all-time high for the conference. This is now the ninth consecutive year, the number of honorees has increased (1,267 in 2016-17; 1,255 in 2015-16; 1,125 in 2014-15; 1,102 in 2013-14; 979 in 2012-13; 759 in 2011-12; 678 in 2010-11; 654 in 2009-10; 617 in 2008-09; 613 in 2007-08).
This annual recognition, in addition to Scholar-Athlete awards, helps to uphold the East Coast Conference’s mission of promoting the total person and the ability to excel not only in the athletic arena, but also in the classroom.
ʺWe are so excited to see how the Honor Roll totals continue to increase each year,ʺ stated Dranoff. ʺThe commitment in the classroom by our ECC student‐athletes has led to another record‐breaking performance. The work put in by these men and women is just another way they contribute to their institutions and the conference. Congratulations!ʺ
St. Thomas Aquinas College Director of Athletics, Gerry Oswald, echoed the Commissioner's sentiments.
"Our entire Athletic Department Staff at St. Thomas Aquinas College is extremely proud of the work done in the classroom by our student-athletes recognized on the ECC Commissioner's Honor Roll," Oswald said. "Our coaches, administrative staff, faculty and student-athletes all work together and support each other, which makes this achievement a tremendous accomplishment."
