Academic excellence honored at UConn

UConn honored its best student-athletes as those attaining a 3.0 GPA either in the spring or fall semester.

Seven of the 11 players on the top-ranked women's basketball team made the cut as seniors Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley, juniors Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Kiah Stokes, sophomores Briana Pulido and Breanna Stewart and freshman Tierney Lawlor made the grade.

"I think it is really important," Dolson said. "It is something that I take a lot of pride in."

Seventeen student-athletes were given special recognition by attaining a 4.0 GPA including three from the greater New Haven area (Madison's Christine Donat, a long jumper on the track team; rower Chelsea Zabel of Guilford and men's basketball player Patrick Lenehan). Other 4.0 honorees were:

Baseball: David Mahoney
Men's Golf: Michael Masso
Men's Hockey: Brett Skibba
Men's Track and Field: Paul DeSalvo
Women's Cross Country: Emily Howard
Women's Rowing: Sarah Mosure, Julia Roth
Women's Soccer: Julianne Hubbard
Women's Swimming: Courtney Gregorian, Kennedy Meier
Women's Track and Field: Nyanka Joseph, Brittany Power
Women Volleyball: Brianna Datti, Jackie Wattles

This is something all UConn fans can take great pride in: not only does our program consistently rank among the best in the country for basketball prowess, it also values the total person, not just the athlete.

Geno's teams have great graduation rates for players that don't transfer out. Close to 100% if not at that number.
