NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Trailblazers placed 37 student-athletes on the Fall 2012 Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference All-Academic Team. To qualify, students must have either a 3.2 semester or cumulative based grade-point average.
A total of 564 student-athletes have been honored by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference that was released earlier today by Commissioner Angela Baumann.
"I want to congratulate all eight member schools on having such a tremendous number of student-athletes honored on the Fall MASCAC All-Academic Team," Baumann said of this year's squad. "The commitment to the all-around development of our student-athletes both in the classroom and in competition is something that our schools take great pride in, and the success that MASCAC student-athletes have achieved in the classroom is testament to that commitment."
The 37 student athletes represent all seven varsity sports whose primary season is in the fall. The number also represents 37 percent of all of the participating athletes at MCLA. The women's soccer (9) program, along with the women's cross-country (8) program had the highest representation.
