ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The Navy women's golf team landed five student-athletes on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll, the league office announced recently.
To be eligible for the Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average during the semester of their sport's championship. Recent graduates Christina Carson (Woodbury Heights, N.J.), Natalie Crow (San Jose, Calif.) and Catherine Reed (Tipp City, Ohio) were joined by rising sophomores Renata Bucher (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Jennifer Coletta (Nashua. N.H.) on the Academic Honor Roll for head coach Nadia Ste-Marie.
A total of 21 players from across the four member schools that sponsor women's golf earned the distinction. Coletta was the lone student-athlete in the Patriot League to record a 4.00 GPA during the spring semester, majoring in mechanical engineering. Coletta was named to the Commandant's and Dean's Lists during the spring semester and sports a cumulative 3.94 GPA.
It was the first academic honor for all five players as the Midshipmen competed in their first varsity season during the 2012-13 campaign. Navy placed third out of four teams at the inaugural Patriot League Championship in April.
