NORFOLK, Va. – Bethune-Cookman University had 73 student-athletes named to the Commissioner’s All-Academic Team, it was announced Friday by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in Norfolk, Va. Bethune-Cookman had the fifth-most student-athletes honored out of the 13-member institution league, highlighted by 41 men’s student-athletes and 33 women.

A total of 882 student-athletes from the conference’s 13 member institutions who achieved academic success during the 2012-13 academic school year were introduced to the team by MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas.

 “I am excited to highlight the 882 student-athletes who maintained a 3.0 or better grade point average during the 2012-13 academic school year,” said Commissioner Dennis E.
