Graduating Student Athletes with an 80%+ Average

This week the Islanders are proud to recognize 45 student athletes who are graduating this spring with an Academic average over 80%. These students show that excelling in academics while practicing a varsity sport is achievable. Recent data has shown that student athletes on average have a higher academic score than students who do not participate in any extra curricular activities. This reinforces the idea that varsity sports do not take away from the academic experience, but add to it.
