For the fifth consecutive year, the East Central College Athletic Department has won the Midwest Community College Athletic Conference Academic Award. 

 

Dr. Jay Mehrhoff, athletic director at ECC, said student athletes had an overall grade point average of 2.97.  That mark allows the Falcons to retain the Harold Oetting Award which is presented each year to the MCCAC school with the highest overall GPA attained by student athletes.

 

“This streak is a testament to the importance the entire college and athletic department places on student athlete academic achievement,” Mehrhoff stated.  “More than half of the student athletes were named Academic All-Conference and more than 60 percent of those same athletes were named to the Academic All-Region team achieving GPAs of 3.25 or higher.”

 

He noted that both the women’s softball and volleyball teams were honored by the NJCAA as All-Academic teams with team GPAs over 3.00.   Three student athletes received academic student athlete awards from the NJCAA for their exceptional classroom performances.  Andrew Hamerlinck (men’s soccer) and and Kaytlyn Wells (women’s softball) received the Superior Academic Achievement Award and Hannah Leslie (women’s volleyball) received Exemplary Academic Achievement honors. 

 

Hamerlinck, a sophomore goalkeeper for the Falcons, maintained a grade point average of 3.92 and was named ECC’s Scholar Athlete for 2013-14.

 

On top of their academic success, the Falcons had one of the best years in college history on the court, pitch and field.  Both the volleyball and softball teams were Region 16 champions and advanced to their respective NJCAA national tournaments.
