The announcement illustrates the league's student-athletes continue to excel at a remarkably high level in the classroom. Of those that were recognized, 284 student-athletes posted a perfect 4.0 GPA this past spring. The total of 284 represents an increase of 18 from the same timeframe last year.
"Our student-athletes continue to succeed at extremely high levels in the classroom, and once again, I am so proud of their accomplishments." said NE10 Commissioner Julie Ruppert. "Our membership's commitment to academic success is unparalleled nationally, and this release proves that once again."
A remarkable 13 of the conference's 15 institutions - 87% of the league's membership - had at least 50% of their total student-athlete population claim NE10 Commissioner's Academic Honor Roll laurels.
Bentley had the most student-athletes earn CHR honors among the 15 NE10 schools with 369 in total.
