A total of 343 Lafayette student-athletes were recognized with Athletic Department honors for the fall semester.

Sixty-six percent of the College’s 517 student-athletes earned higher than a 3.0 GPA, including 16 with a perfect 4.0. The academic honor roll is separated into a gold level with GPA’s of 3.80 and above, silver from 3.50 to 3.79, and bronze between 3.00 and 3.49. Forty-nine students reached the gold level, 107 silver, and 187 bronze.

Lafayette student-athletes have now reached the 65 percent threshold in 10 consecutive semesters, a mark that had only been reached once, the 2003 spring semester, since the inception of the Patriot League in 1990.

Track & field led the way with 10 gold honors, followed by swimming & diving with eight and baseball with four. Every one of the College’s 23 sports had at least one student-athlete represented in the gold category.

Individually, Lafayette had eight Academic All-Patriot League selections in the fall semester.

Women’s cross country runner Rose Willey ’14 (Brookfield, Conn.), a mathematics-economics major, earned the distinction with her cumulative 3.88 GPA. A pair of men’s soccer players, Blake Fink ’13 (Westampton, N.J.), a government and law major with a 3.71 GPA, and Julian Plummer ’15 (Kendall Park, N.J.), a psychology major with a 3.49 GPA, were honored, as well as field hockey’s Emily Valeo ’13 (Norristown, Pa.), an English major with a 3.78 GPA, and Jaclyn White ’13 (Clarksboro, N.J.), a geology major with a 3.80 GPA.

    If this many made academic honors, the standards are too low.
