EDISON, NJ - The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference announced its 2012-13 Academic Honor Roll with Iona College placing 161 student-athletes on the list. It was both  the second highest total in school history and second highest among MAAC full-time and associate member schools. For the second year time, first-year student-athletes completing two semesters at the institution were eligible for the list.

Six Iona student-athletes maintained a perfect 4.00 GPA including three graduate students and three freshmen. Teammates Nicole Cochran and Jenny Kurz (women's cross country / track) along with Alvaro Torrecilla (men's soccer) earned MBA degrees from Iona's Hagan School of Business. The three rookies were Sarah Schutz (softball), McKenzie Humann (volleyball) and Dana Andrea (water polo).

Eleven additional Gaels hold boast a GPA of 3.90 or higher including six from the cross country / track programs. Grad students Daniel Clorley and Mitch Goose, juniors Tara Jameson and Katie Niblock, and sophomores Regina Neumeyer and Michael O'Dowd have excelled in both competition and in the classroom during their tenure at Iona. Junior Gregory Badura (Rowing), junior Tommy Martin (Soccer), freshman Thomas McNulty (Rowing), senior Kara Nowakowski (Swimming) and freshman Jenna Stone (Lacrosse) have also achieved GPA greater than 3.90.

A record 1,625 athletes were honored for their achievements both academically and athletically as the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference announced the 2011-13 MAAC Academic Honor Roll.

To be eligible for the MAAC Academic Honor Roll, an athlete must hold a grade point average of 3.20 or higher on a 4.0 scale. The Honor Roll is open to both full-time and associate members of the MAAC with athletes represented in all 24 sports that the conference sponsors.
