PacWest names 120 Penguin student-athletes to honor roll

Dominican University of California placed 120 student-athletes on the Pacific West Conference’s annual academic honor roll, recognizing 1,595 student-athletes for the academic and athletic achievements in 2015-16.

The list, which includes the names of all Dominican student-athletes who made the honor roll,  was released June 27 by the conference office in Irvine.

Student-athletes who achieve at least a cumulative 3.0 grade-point average and are eligible for participation in their sport receive Academic All-PacWest recognition.

A record 10 schools had more than 100 Academic All-PacWest members. Dominican’s PacWest honor roll honorees included all eligible members of the Penguins’ women's soccer and tennis teams.

Dominican won the Pacific West Conference Academic Achievement Award an unprecedented six consecutive years until finishing second to BYU-Hawaii this year, though the Penguins' student-athletes matched their previous best of an accumulative 3.41 GPA. BYU-Hawaii set a PacWest record with a 3.44 GPA.
