| The New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) announced its 2006-07 Winter All-Academic selections. Twenty-seven Wesleyan student-athletes received the honor.
To be honored, a student-athlete must have reached junior academic standing and be a varsity letter-winner with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.35. A transfer student must have completed one year of study at the institution.
“At Wesleyan, athletics is to be an integral part of the overall educational enterprise,” says Wesleyan Director of Athletics John Biddiscombe. “The All Academic NESCAC scholar-athletes are an outstanding example of how well athletics integrates with the academic program.”
Ellen Davis 07 was named a notable member of the Winter All-Academic team. Davis, a member of the Cardinal Indoor Track and Field Team, won the individual title in the 5,000-meter event at the 2007 NCAA National Indoor Track and Field Championships on March 10 in Terre Haute, Ind. Davis, who is majoring in womens studies, was named to the Winter All-Academic Team last year and has also earned All-Academic recognition in the fall of 2006 for Cross Country and spring of 2006 for Outdoor Track and Field.
