McDaniel places 95 student-athletes on Dean’s List, introduces Green and Gold Honor Roll

WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel College has announced its Dean’s List from the Fall 2010 semester and 95 Green Terror student-athletes, including 34 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.

Through a joint initiative of the athletics department, including the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), and President’s Office, McDaniel has also announced the establishment of the Green and Gold Honor Roll.

To be named to the newly formed 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 or higher.

Three Green Terror student-athletes have earned the department’s new honor in the first semester of its existence.

Sophomore Paige Messersmith (Phoenix, Md./Dulaney), a midfielder on the field hockey team, earned honorable mention honors on the field and Honors in the classroom in the fall. An exercise science and physical education major, she ranked fourth on the team with nine points and tied for the team lead with five defensive saves.

Junior Jake Nichols (Frederick, Md./Gov. Thomas Johnson), a punter on the football team, earned second-team All-CC honors on the field and Honors in the classroom last fall. A business/economics major, he led the conference in punting, averaging 37.7 yards on a CC-high 74 punts. He had six punts of 50 yards or longer, including a long of 63 yards. Nichols forced 17 fair catches and dropped 16 punts inside the 20.
