American International College Student Athletes Honored

AIC StudentsSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Athletes at American International College were honored tonight for their accomplishments off the field and in the classroom.

More than 100 student athletes were inducted into the “3.0 Club” for maintaining that GPA or higher.

The students we talked say they enjoy the recognition.

“You just have to manage your time well, whether you’re on the bus and studying in your room or locker room, you do what you have to do to get that average,” says Erica McClean, field hockey player and Accounting major.

A.I.C’s athletics director says one of the main purposes of the event is to inspire underclassmen.  He hopes they see how successful their teammates have been athletically and academically.
