ANNANDALE – The academic accolades continue to come in for the Northern Virginia Community College athletic department, as six Nighthawk student-athletes were named to the NJCAA Region 20 All-Academic Team Friday.
The NOVA cross country and volleyball teams had two student-athletes each named to the team. Meili Wood and Berith Austin from the cross country team earned a nod, while volleyball student-athletes Sophia Duff and Katy Garrity were honored.
Also recognized for their work in the classroom were former student-athletes Rheana Gray and Noe Cuadra.
"This is an amazing achievement by our six student-athletes, who were named to All-Academic team," said Director of Athletics Steve Mrowka. "These six individuals are the poster children for what a student-athlete should be."
Eleven Nighthawk student-athletes have been recognized for their work in the classroom during the 2017-18 academic year.
