CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Two-time Patriot League Swimmer of the Year and 2013 Academic All-American Laura Gorinski (Greensburg, Pa.) was one of 11 members of the Navy women's swimming and diving team named to the recently announced Patriot League Academic Honor Roll for the sport.
A total of 102 women's swimmers and divers from around the league earned the accolade, which required a minimum 3.20 grade-point average for the 2013 spring semester. Navy accounted for four of the 14 members of the honor roll to attain at least a 4.00 GPA for the grading period.
Gorinski, the lone swimmer in league history to be tabbed as both the swimmer of the year (2012, `13) and scholar-athlete of the year (2011, `12, `13) multiple times in a career, was named to the honor roll for the fourth year in a row. She compiled a 4.00 GPA in completing a degree in astrophysics.
Also appearing on the honor roll for a fourth-straight year and with a 4.00 GPA was Gorinski's classmate Katie Davidson (Geneva, Fla.), who was an honors English major. Rising senior Lauren Baguley (Hudsonville, Mich.) and rising sophomore Ellen Bradford (Knoxville, Tenn.) each also posted 4.00 GPA's this spring. Baguley achieved hers as an oceanography major, while Bradford is a systems engineering major.
Joining Gorinski and Davidson from the Class of 2013 on the honor roll were team captain Kellie Darmody (Charlotte, N.C.) and Danielle Reminger (Wheaton, Ill.), both of whom majored in oceanography. Darmody posted a 3.75 GPA and Reminger finished up her four years on The Yard with a 3.73 GPA in her final semester.
The remaining Navy swimmers and divers to earn the accolade were rising seniors Maddie Macfarlane

(Manassas, Va.), computer science, 3.40; along with rising sophomores Megan Reutzel
(The Woodlands, Texas), ocean engineering, 3.65; Emily Saitta
(Springfield, Va.), naval architecture, 3.76; and Nicole Skaggs
