"I am pleased to see our name on this list," said Head Coach Erica Mastrogiacomo. "Our student-athletes continue to prove that their hard work and dedication exceeds the playing field and into the classroom. I know the level of maturity and responsibility it takes to be a collegiate student-athlete, and to maintain such a quality GPA as a team is an example of the pride these young women have in themselves and in our program."
