ECC COMMISSIONER'S HONOR ROLL TOTAL RISES FOR SIXTH YEAR
Central Islip, N.Y. (7/29/14) East Coast
Conference Commissioner, Dr. Robert Dranoff, announced the list of
1,090 student-athletes who were named to the ECC Commissioner's
Honor Roll for the 2013-2014 academic year on Monday afternoon. The
ECC’s 11 member institutions and three associate members
continued to increase the number of student-athletes honored for
the sixth consecutive year (979 in 2012-13; 759 in 2011-12; 678 in
2010-11; 654 in 2009-10; 617 in 2008-09; 613 in 2007-08).
"The number of students added to our ECC Commissioner's Honor Roll has grown each year since we began this award six years ago, which is a real tribute to the hard work our athletic programs and, especially, our student-athletes put in the class room," stated Dranoff. "We are very pleased to recognize these 1,090 men and women for their hard work and wonderful achievements."
LIU Post led all ECC institutions for the third consecutive year, placing 134 student-athletes on the Honor Roll. Bridgeport narrowly finished behind LIU Post with 131 student-athletes honored, while Roberts Wesleyan was third with 116. Molloy (114) and Dowling (104) also reached triple-digits for number of student-athletes on the list.
The Commissioner’s Honor Roll is awarded to student-athletes who receive a 3.25 or better cumulative grade point average. This annual recognition, in addition to Scholar-Athlete awards, helps to uphold the East Coast Conference’s mission of promoting the total person and the ability to excel not only in the athletic arena but also in the classroom.
Dominican College, who is an associate member in the sport of men's lacrosse had four student-athletes named to the honor roll.
