89 Student-Athletes Win ADA Division II Academic Excellence Awards

2021-22 Division II ADA Academic Achievement Award Release

EASTON, Mass. (August 12, 2022)- 89 Stonehill student-athletes have been recognized with Division II Athletic Director’s Association (ADA) Academic Excellence Awards, as announced earlier this month.

In total, there were a record 16,762 student-athletes from 171 recognized institutions for the 2021-22 Academic Excellence Awards. This is the highest number of student-athletes recognized since the inception of the awards program. For the fourth consecutive year, the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) has the most honored student-athletes with 1,709 overall, followed closely by the Sunshine State Conference with 1,306 and the Northeast 10 Conference (NE10) with 1,239. Additionally, we would also like to recognize two additional conferences that finished in the top five; the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (GMAC) with 1,199 and the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) with 1,171, respectively.

For a student-athlete to receive an academic achievement award, the athletic director of the Division II institution MUST BE a CURRENT dues-paying member of ADA D2.

In addition, the student-athlete must:

  • have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale
  • have completed at least two years (four semesters) of college-level work
  • have been an active member of an intercollegiate team in their senior academic year (given the continued challenges faced by institutions this year with participation, all athletes who meet points 1 and 2 are still eligible as long as they were still an active roster member during that academic year)

The Skyhawks were represented by 18 programs. The soccer team was represented with a maximum of 13 student-athletes, while women’s soccer followed with nine winners. Women’s volleyball saw eight female student-athletes make the list, while women’s cross country and equestrian had six, and finally softball, women’s swimming and women’s track and field rounded out the top five with five each. .

With 23 intercollegiate sports when women’s ice hockey first hits the ice in 2022-23, Stonehill has one of the best athletic and academic programs in the country. Founding member of NCAA Division II Northeast-10 Conference since 1980, the College announced that the athletic department would begin a transition to NCAA Division I as a member of the Northeast Conference July 1 for the 2022-23 academic year. Stonehill have won the NE10 Presidents Cup six times, all in the past 15 years. The Skyhawks have received the NCAA Division II Presidents Award for Academic Achievement each of the first ten years of the honors program’s existence with an Academic Achievement Rate (ASR) of 90% or greater. The Skyhawks’ 92% ASR for the 2011-2014 cohort period ranks fifth among NE10 and 20 memberse nationally among the 303 NCAA Division II member institutions, with seven programs earning perfect ASR scores of 100%. The College is ranked #98 in the National Liberal Arts Schools category by U.S. News & World Report and #94 in the Best Value category.
