"This is the sixth consecutive year the program has been honored, and it shows that our student-athletes are as committed to achieving excellence in the classroom as they are on the field. Every year the team sets an academic goal, and it is a testament of their commitment to academic success that they have reached their goal this year. I am very proud of what they have accomplished."
The 2011 NEC Regular Season and Tournament Champion Bobcats posted a team GPA of 3.12 for the academic year.
