Worcester State placed 100 student-athletes on the list and Fitchburg State finished with 99 student-athletes

“Once again, the numbers continue to rise among the honorees on the MASCAC All-Academic Team which shows the amount of hard work the student-athletes put in while in the classroom,” MASCAC Commissioner Angela Baumann said. “The student-athletes in the MASCAC are showing that they not only work hard on game day but when it comes to academics as well.”
