For NEC Spring Academic Honor Roll
For NEC Spring Commissioner's Honor Roll
Somerset, NJ --
During tough times, Northeast Conference student-athletes remained remarkably dedicated to their academic pursuits.
A record 1,478 student-athletes were named to the Spring Academic Honor Roll, all with at least a 3.20 grade-point average. The conference set another new standard with 411 student-athletes earning Spring Commissioner’s Honor Roll recognition with a 3.75 or better grade point average.
Over the course of the 2019-20 academic year, a league record 3,411 NEC student-athletes landed a spot on the Academic Honor Roll, a 40.5 percent increase from the previous standard of 2,476 set during the 2017-18 academic year. Likewise, a record 1,067 student-athletes were named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll, a 40.2 percent jump from the previous high-water mark of 761 in 2018-19.
"I couldn't be prouder of our spring sport student-athletes who continued to prioritize their academic success during the most trying of circumstances," said NEC Commissioner Noreen Morris. "And for NEC student-athletes as a whole to not just break, but shatter, single-year records for NEC Academic and Commissioner's Honor Roll membership demonstrates their unwavering commitment to being the best they can be in the classroom."
