50 Fall Athletes named to All Academic Teams

North Adams, MA- The 2015 fall All Academic teams have been announced by both the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletics Conference (MASCAC) and North Atlantic Conference (NAC) this afternoon.  The MCLA Trailblazers placed 50 fall student-athletes on these respective rosters.   

A total of 674 student-athletes have been honored by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference with selection to the league’s Fall 2015 All-Academic Team.  Student-athletes that compete in championship varsity sports offered by each of the MASCAC institutions during the course of the Fall 2015 athletic season and have achieved a 3.20 cumulative or semester-based grade point average during the semester are eligible for selection to the Fall All-Academic Team.  

A total of 190 student-athletes have been named to the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) All-Academic Team after the fall 2015 semester.  The NAC All-Academic Team recognizes student-athletes on varsity sports teams who have earned a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 3.50 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Student-athletes must also have reached sophomore academic standing and competed in a minimum of two years of varsity competition at their institution.  MCLA is an affiliate member of the NAC competing in Women's Tennis and Golf.
