Sixty Fall Sports Athletes Earn 2011 NESCAC All-Academic Team Recognition

MEDFORD - Sixty Jumbos who played fall sports during the 2011 season were announced today as All-Academic selections by the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC).

To be honored, a student-athlete must have reached sophomore academic standing and be a varsity letter winner with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.35. A transfer student must have completed one year of study at the institution.

Five Jumbo athletes combined the academic honor with being named to the All-NESCAC teams for athletic performance earlier this fall. They were volleyball's Audrey Kuan (Los Altos, CA), women's soccer's Jamie Love-Nichols (Cortez, CO), women's soccer's Lauren O'Connor (Dudley, MA), men's cross country's Matt Rand (Cape Elizabeth, ME) and women's soccer's Alyssa Von Puttkammer (Park City, UT).
