Our institutions, coaches and support staffs are committed to the academic success of our student-athletes.”
Four Aggies were included in the 81 student-athletes recognized by the MEAC. Redshirt senior Janessa Benn, senior Natalia “Roshel” Bygrave and juniors Christian Harrison and Saeed Jones were the men’s and women’s cross country athletes honored.
