Ten UMBC Student-Athletes Named AE Presidential Scholar-Athletes

BOSTON – A conference-high 59 America East student-athletes have been named America East Presidential Scholar-Athletes for their outstanding academic achievements throughout their collegiate careers. The award recognizes graduating student-athletes who compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher as an undergraduate student and graduated this spring.

Ten UMBC student-athletes are among the 59 that have been recognized, including four from the women's swimming and diving squad.
