BETHANY PLACES 22 ON THE PAC ACADEMIC HONOR ROLL

WEXFORD, Pa. – A total of 22 student-athletes from Bethany College earned a spot on the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) Academic Honor Roll during the 2006 fall semester, which was released Thursday by the conference office.

In all, 260 student-athletes from league schools were named to the honor roll, which recognizes those on fall varsity athletic teams who earned a grade-point average of 3.6 or higher on a 4.0 scale during the semester of their competition.

Of the 22 Bison student-athletes to make the list, 12 of those posted a GPA above 3.8, of which three earned a perfect 4.0. The football and volleyball teams had the most representatives on the honor roll, with five each, while women’s tennis and cross country both had four members of their rosters earn a spot.

Waynesburg College led the eight conference schools, as 50 student-athletes earned PAC Academic Honor Roll laurels in the fall, followed by Washington & Jefferson (43), Saint Vincent (38), Grove City (37), Westminster (27), Thiel (25), Bethany (22) and Thomas More (18).
