15 Post University student-athletes shine bright

Fifteen of our student-athletes recently had a special reason to celebrate. They were named to the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) All-Academic team for the 2010 fall athletic season. Way to go guys!

Being a part of the CACC's All-Academic team is a great achievement not only athletically, but also academically.

To be named to the team, recipients must have participated in a CACC Championship sport in the fall. In addition, they must be at least a sophomore, have been a student-athlete at their current school for at least two semesters, and achieve a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.50 or higher through the fall semester.

Here are our students who made the cut. Keep up the great work guys!!
