Fifteen Philadelphia University student-athletes recently received the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) All-Academic honors for the spring 2010 athletic season.
Honorees include baseball players Tyler Mentzer, Jared Farbman and Matthew Minakowski; softball players Kristyn Loughery, Devyn O’Neill, Kelly Rauco, Kate Desmond, Randi Wozniak and Allison Glaser; and lacrosse players Ania Crawford, Kelly Dallas, Jennifer Sica, Kalin Hodel, Taylor Peltzer and Kelly Staerk.
“We are proud of these accomplished student-athletes,” said Tom Shirley, director of athletics and women’s basketball head coach. “They are a shining representation of Philadelphia University athletics and have a bright future athletically and in their professions.”
In order to be named to the CACC All-Academic team, recipients must have participated in a CACC Championship sport this past fall. Students must be at least a sophomore academically and athletically; have been a student-athlete at their current school for at least two semesters; and achieve a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.50 or higher through the spring semester.
