Collegiate Academic Honor Roll announced for the 2016-17 season

LAFAYETTE, Colo. – Two hundred and twenty-five student athletes have been recognized for their academic excellence with their naming to the 2016-17 USA Rugby National Collegiate Academic Honor Roll.

The diverse group of college students represent both men’s and women’s rugby across Divisions I, II and the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO). Nomination and naming to this prestigious honor requires the players to be at least a sophomore in class standing, possess a cumulative GPA of at least 3.50 and a regular member of his or her program’s ‘A-side’ as either a starter or reserve.

In six years of naming a National Collegiate Academic Honor Roll, USA Rugby has recognized the hard work, leadership and diligence of over 1,500 well-deserving student-athletes.

“It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2016-17 USA Rugby Academic Honor Roll,” said USA Rugby Collegiate Director Rich Cortez. “These athletes have proven once again that academic excellence and athletic achievement can be complementary. Their institutions, families, coaches and fans can be justifiably proud of their achievements on and off the field.”
