- Ten Green Mountain College student-athletes earn NAC All-Academic honors
The success of Green Mountain's fall varsity sports programs is
not just limited to the Eagles' performance on the field or court,
it runs deep into the classroom as well. That fact was made evident
when the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) announced its 2012 Fall
All-Academic Team members, Feb. 7.
Ten Eagle student-athletes were bestowed with the honor, marking
the most recipients ever to achieve the distinction amongst past
Green Mountain fall student-athletes. In fact, this year's
achievement ties the College's mark set last spring for the most
All-Academic honors in a semester.
Leading the way with five honorees was the women's soccer
program. Senior players Casey McGill (King of Prussia, Pa.) and
Emma Lord (Greenville, N.Y.) who were on this list last year were
joined by juniors Emma Christensen (Rangeley, Maine), Johanna
Douglas (Essex, Conn.), and Katrina Goebel (Rileyville, Va.).
Men's soccer and cross country each had two student-athletes
recognized by the NAC. Returning to the list were seniors
Ryan Laymon (Illion, N.Y.) and Chris Donovan (Bedford, Mass.) from
soccer and cross country, respectively. Juniors Tyler Lawson
(Adams, Mass.) of men's soccer and Scott Morris (Hewitt, N.J.) from
cross country joined them in receiving the honor.
Women's cross country runner Whitney Rose (Kalamazoo, Mich.)
rounded out the ten student-athletes to receive the award with her
repeat performance of last fall's achievement.
