GLEN ALLEN, Virginia--The Rider University field hockey team was one of 63 Division I teams recognized by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) for a grade point average over a 3.00 it was recently announced.

Rider, the 2012 champions of the Northeast Conference and an NCAA Play-In qualifier, had 11 players honored by the NEC for a grade point average over a 3.20 and 10 of those players earned NFHCA National Academic recognition for a g.p.a. over a 3.30.

In the 2012 Gladiator by SGI / NFHCA Division I National Team grade point average awards, Rider earned a 3.26 on a 4.00 scale after earning a 3.37 grade point average last season.

Roberts).
