Five rising seniors earn Academic Honor Roll laurels, topped by a 3.78 grade-point average from Margaux LeBuffe. LeBuffe, who is a double major in Spanish and American Studies, is joined by classmates Alexa Biale (English and Art), Meg Ohlmacher (Government & Law and History), Lauren Curley (American Studies) and Erin Steel (Economics).
The Class of 2013 is the most-honored class, with six student-athletes earning Academic Honor Roll distinctions.
