Fifty-four Bobcats named NESCAC Fall All-Academic

HADLEY, Mass. — Fifty-four Bates College students from Bates’ fall sports teams have received 2013 NESCAC Fall Academic honors, announced Tuesday by the New England Small College Athletic Conference.

To be honored, a student-athlete must have reached sophomore 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.

Bates’ list includes one All-NESCAC performer in his sport, senior men’s golf player Garrett Johnson (Lexington, Mass.), and two All-New England cross country runners in senior Kallie Nixon (Medfield, Mass.) and junior Elena Jay (West Hartford, Conn.).

Earning their third career NESCAC Fall All-Academic recognition are men's golf senior Zachary Abbott (Rangeley, Maine), women's cross country senior Merrill Brady (Concord, Mass.), men's cross country senior Logan Greenblatt (South Berwick, Maine), Johnson, women's soccer senior Anabel Schmelz (Monmouth Beach, N.J.) and field hockey senior Sarah Warden (North Andover, Mass.).

There are also four Bates honorees who were also named NESCAC Fall All-Sportsmanship earlier this week, in Abbott, volleyball sophomore Abby Leberman (Concord, N.H.) and women's soccer senior Chelsea Thompson (Farmington, Maine).
