CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - The American University field hockey team had another good showing on the Patriot League Fall Academic Honor Roll with 17 student-athletes earning honors, the league office released on Thursday.
To be eligible for the fall academic honor roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 GPA in the fall semester and participate in one of the Patriot League's seven fall championship sports.
Among the highlights for the Eagles' honorees is senior Maura Jacobs (PR and strategic communication), who closed her career with a second consecutive Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. Classmate Rachel Stefano (elementary education) and freshman Aidan Rossman (undeclared) also topped the list as American's two 4.00 performers from the fall semester.
Both Jacobs and Stefano were two of the six four-time honorees for AU along with classmates Megan Benson (international studies), Annaka Groschinski (justice and law), Rafaela Rubas (business administration), and Lucy Whalley (business administration).
Sophomore Kathryn Roncoroni (elementary education) was the team's lone three-time honoree while junior Jette Dieckmann (business administration), and sophomores Gabby Arata (business administration) and Carlotta Borcherding (international studies) all earned their third league recognition.
The Eagles also had a number of first-time award winners with junior Caroline Miller (justice and law), and freshmen Dani Acuna (biology), Logan Beal (psychology), Georgia Davies (psychology), Josie Formica (undeclared), Maura Phelan (CLEG), and Aidan Rossman (undeclared).
