Five teams have been nominated for NJCAA Academic Team of the Year including men’s basketball and golf, and women’s basketball, golf, and volleyball.
“It is very impressive that so many of our student athletes are able to manage both their athletic and academic workloads and be so successful. This is an example of how well our students, coaches and faculty work together for student success. The bottom line is that our athletes are here to get the best education they can and we are all dedicated to making that happen,” Barlow said.
