Top 10: No. 4 - Student-Athletes Make the Grade

Top 10: No. 4 - Student-Athletes Make the Grade

WINCHESTER, Va. - For the past 10 days, the Shenandoah University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has been taking a look back at its top moments of 2011-12. Today, we return to the series with our look at the No. 4 highlight - Student-Athletes Make the Grade.

In the previous four years of this 'summer series' project, student-athlete academic performance has always earned a spot in the 'top 10'.

This year, the first season in the ODAC, is no different. 

Athletes at Shenandoah, who make up approximately 25 percent of the undergraduate population, have certainly earned the title 'student-athlete'.'

In the fall and spring semesters, a total of 365 earned either Dean's List or Athletic Director's List accolades.

As a whole, the department achieved a 2.89 cumulative GPA in the spring semester.

In the past six years, at least one student-athlete has earned Academic All-America honors.

This year was no different as senior football player Nick Erdman added his name to the list.

Erdman, along with junior women's soccer player Jenna Kline, earned Academic All-District honors.

An additional 12 student-athletes were selected and inducted into the ODK national leadership honor society.

On the field, men's golfer Zach Ramey was named as the ODAC Sportsmanship Award winner with women's field hockey taking team honors.

The field hockey team was also honored by the NFCA for its academic achievement with women's cross country getting the same from the USTFCCCA.

These academic achievements were also backed up by significant and numerous community service projects.

Every team participated in some type of community service project, with everyone teaming up during the university's Community Service Day.

Women's Hoops made Easter a little bit more fun with the men helping out the Laurel Center.

Softball had a very special benefit contest.

The SAAC also got into the act with two projects.

The links recap just a few of the community service projects student-athletes participated in this past year. Clearly, SU student-athletes are winners on and off the playing fields.
