FCC Student-Athletes Recognized For Academic Achievements

Story Contributions: NJCAA Marketing & Development

Charlotte, NC – Student-athletes from around the nation contributed to a new NJCAA record as 6,656 participants earned a spot on one of the three NJCAA All-Academic teams. This year's record eclipsed the previous mark of 6,329 set in the 2017-18 academic year.

"Year in and year out, NJCAA student-athletes continue to set a new standard both on the field and in the classroom," stated NJCAA President & CEO Dr. Christopher Parker. "The 2018-19 academic year was no different as student-athletes raised the bar once again to reiterate the importance of academics throughout the NJCAA. As an association, we take tremendous pride in knowing that our student-athletes put their best foot forward each day to become well-rounded members of their team, their campus, and their communities."

In addition to excellence on the fields and courts, Frederick Community College student-athletes continue to shine in the classroom. These students have been recognized for their ability to maximize their academic potential, and their commitment to academic improvement and growth.

The Frederick Community College volleyball team paved the way for the Cougar Athletic Department by registering three student-athletes with a perfect 4.0 GPA on the year. Congrats to all the winners!
