BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The third annual Bears Scholar-Athlete Team was honored on Tuesday at halftime of the men's and women's basketball games, recognizing SJC Brooklyn student-athletes who achieved a 3.5 or better grade point average during either spring or fall semester of the 2018 calendar year.
In total, 76 student-athletes earned the distinction with many in attendance for the special ceremony and were congratulated by SJC President Donald R. Boomgaarden, Ph.D., Director of Athletics and Recreation James Lally, Assistant Director of Athletics for Compliance and Student-Athlete Services Kayla Koch, Department of Criminal Justice Chairman and Faculty Athletics Representative Dr. Joseph Pascarella, and Director of the Academic Center, Accommodations Coordinator Kris Percival.
"We are extremely proud of the way our student-athletes continue to succeed on the fields and courts, and most importantly in the classroom," remarked Lally.

The athletic department would like to thank all the faculty and staff for supporting the student-athletes in their academic endeavors and congratulates the members of the 2018 Scholar-Athlete Team.
