Goldstein Named to Academic All-League Team
May 8, 2013
EASTON, Pa. – Sophomore Brandon Goldstein was selected to the Men’s Tennis Academic All-Patriot League Team, the League announced Wednesday. The honor comes after being selected to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll last season.
To be eligible for the Scholar-Athlete of the Year award and the Academic All-Patriot League Team, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average and be a starter or key player in his/her sport. Freshmen or students in their first academic year at their school are not eligible for the honor.
The Academic All-Patriot League Team honors student-athletes who excel in their sport and the classroom, and the size equals the sport’s first-team All-Patriot League composition. Sports information directors, who are not allowed to vote for their own student-athletes, select the academic award winners.
The Livingston, N.J. native led the Leopards with a 3.82 grade-point average as an Economics major and posted a 4-9 overall record in both singles and doubles matches. During Patriot League play, the sophomore’s season was highlighted by victories at No. 1 singles and No. 2 doubles in Lafayette’s match against Holy Cross.
