Fifteen student-athletes, including Christopher Copeland of Suffolk, recently earned academic achievement awards from the Division 2 Athletic Directors Association for the 2011-12 season. Copeland is currently studying sports management at Saint Augustine’s University.

The Academic Achievement Awards recognizes the academic accomplishments of student-athletes on the Division II level.
