Hartford, Conn. – The Trinity College spring athletic teams placed 64 student-athletes on the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) 2015-16 Spring All-Academic Team. To be honored, an individual must have reached sophomore academic standing and be a varsity letter winner with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.35. A transfer student must have completed one year of study at the institution.
Of the 1,026 student-athletes named to the team, 341 were honored for the second time in their career, while 204 were recognized for the third time. In addition, 132 members of the group garnered both All-Academic and All-NESCAC accolades this spring, led by 22 student-athletes from Williams. A total of 54 individuals were named to both the All-Sportsmanship and All-Academic Teams by the conference.
Six individuals collected all three honors, including Trinity women's track and field senior captain Katie Tonyai (Jaffrey, N.H.). Tonyai, who was a vital part of Trinity's 4x100-meter relay team that has broken and re-broken the College record this spring, most recently at the Last Chance Qualifier at MIT, earned All-NESCAC honors as well as All-New England honors as part of the relay team. She also won the Trinity College Senior Female Scholar Athlete of the Year award at the College's annual athletics awards reception earlier this month.
