All seven of Endicott's fall athletic programs produced a GPA of 3.18 or higher, which also included five teams with at least a 3.45 GPA or greater. Women's volleyball paced Endicott's seven fall programs with a 3.55 GPA.
Of the 70 honorees, Jamie Zompa (Marlborough, Mass.) of the women's tennis team and Nick Weinstein (Trumbull, Conn.) of the men's soccer program represented Endicott as the Senior Scholar-Athlete of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year in their respective sports.
In order to be recognized as a member of the Academic All-Conference Team an athlete must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.3 (on a 4.0 scale) and must also have attained sophomore status.
