WALTHAM, Mass. – 129 Bentley University student-athletes have received 2018-19 Academic Achievement Awards from the Division 2 Athletics Director Association for their success in the classroom last academic year.
The 129 honorees was the most for any institution in the Northeast-10 Conference and the East Region, as well as tied for the tenth highest total nationally. Putting that into perspective, there are more than 300 Division II institutions across the country.
Requirements to receive an Academic Achievement Award include a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale, have completed a minimum of two years of college level work and be an active member of an intercollegiate team during the 2017-18 academic year.
"I am very excited to see the highest number of student-athletes get recognized for their academic achievements this past year," said D2 ADA President Chris Ratcliff, director of athletics at Rogers State University. "The number of institutions recognizing their student-athletes' academic achievements continues to rise. As a Board, this is perhaps one of our biggest initiatives. We see the value of acknowledging academic achievements. This a way for our member institutions, through D2 ADA, to recognize our student-athletes."
