Nine Raiders Named NFCA All-America Scholar-Athletes

Colgate Student-Athletes Honored for Success in the Classroom

A Patriot League-leading nine members of the Colgate softball team have been named Easton/NFCA All-America Scholar-Athletes, the organization announced Tuesday.

The Raiders were represented by seniors Holly Geranen and Kyle Griswold, juniors Madison Aston and Meghan Romero and sophomores Virginia Irby and Jordan Miller. All three 2017 graduates also landed on the list as Katie Bushee, Tara Grennan and Gillian Murray earned the honors.

The Easton/NFCA Scholar-Athlete award is given to a player submitted by a member coach who achieved a 3.50 grade point average or higher during the 2016-17 academic year. The Raiders landed more players on the Scholar-Athlete list than any other Patriot League team.

The Raiders are well into their fall practices and will kick off their first season under first-year head coach Marissa Lamison-Myers in February.
