Winning combination

Students excel in academics and athletics

This academic year 17 Wheaton student-athletes have earned 2011 New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference All-Academic Team honors. Honorees are required to have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale or 4.35 on a 5.0 scale after the 2011 spring season. They also need to have been a member of a varsity team for the entire season. The students may play different sports and pursue different majors, but they all have one thing in common—commitment to being the best in academics as well as athletics. Performing amazing balancing acts every day, they push their bodies and minds as far as they can, while wishing they could do even more. We asked some of them about the secret to their success.
