McDaniel places 106 student-athletes on Dean's List, seven on Green and Gold Honor Roll

WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel College has announced its Dean's List from the Fall 2016 semester and 106 Green Terror student-athletes, including 33 first-semester students, qualified for the honors.

To qualify for the Dean's List, a student must achieve a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.50 for the semester. A GPA of 3.5-3.699 earns a student Honors according to the College. A GPA of 3.7-3.899 earns a student High Honors while a GPA of 3.9 or above qualifies for Highest Honors.

McDaniel also honors student-athletes through the establishment of the Green and Gold Honor Roll, which was introduced in 2011 through a joint initiative of the athletics department, including the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), and President's Office.

To be named to the Honor Roll, a student-athlete must be named to the Dean's List in the same semester in which he or she has also been named to an athletic honor of All-Centennial Conference (CC) or higher.

Four Green Terror student-athletes have earned the department's honor this past semester.

Sophomore Taylor Bauman (Charlottesville, Va./Albemarle), a libero on the volleyball team, earned honorable mention honors on the court. She earned Highest Honors in the classroom. A biology major, she led the defense with 422 digs and 42 service aces. She added 42 assists to the offense.

An exercise science major, he averaged 19.8 yards on 29 kickoff returns and 9.2 yards on 17 punt returns. His punt-return average ranked second in the conference. In addition to his 601 rushing yards, he totaled 574 kick-return yards and 157 punt-return yards to give him 1,423 all-purpose yards on the year, which ranked third in the CC.
