Field Hockey Receives Academic Recognition
Eastern Field Hockey received recognition Monday as one of the Division III field hockey programs to earn a National Academic Team Award.
The award, issued by SGI/ NFHCA, honors teams with a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the first semester of the 2012-13 academic year.
Eastern Field Hockey reached the second round of the NCAA tournament after winning the Freedom Conference Championship for the fifth year in a row. The Eagles finished the season 16-6.
Eagles' head coach Camrin Azzarano said the distinction affirms the message she tells her current athletes and prospective athletes. "One of the main reasons we want our athletes to choose Eastern is for academic purposes," she said. "We want everything we do to support the idea of academic and athletic excellence."
The 2012 Gladiator by SGI / NFHCA Division III National Academic Squad will be released on Tuesday, March 5th. The 2012 Gladiator by SGI / NFHCA Division III Scholars of Distinction will be released on Wednesday, March 6th.
