BIG EAST Release

The Lady Flames field hockey team featured 23 student-athletes on the BIG EAST All-Academic team, released by the conference office this week.  

Liberty's honorees include five freshmen, nine sophomores, three juniors, five seniors and one graduate student. In total, 148 student-athletes from the conference's eight field hockey squads were represented on the all-academic team. The Lady Flames led all BIG EAST field hockey teams with their 23 all-academic team recipients.

To be eligible for this honor, nominees must have competed in a BIG EAST-sponsored sport, attained a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.00 for the preceding school year and completed a minimum of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters of academic work.  

In addition to  their success in the classroom, the Lady Flames had another successful season on the pitch, last fall. Liberty finished runner up in both the BIG EAST regular-season standings and at the BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship for a second straight season. The team ended the year as the 23rd-ranked NCAA Division I field hockey squad in the nation.

Overall, 2,485 BIG EAST student-athletes across 22 sports earned all-academic team honors, the second-highest total in the five years since realignment.
