"With these three not only making impacts on the field, but also in the classroom, it continues to build the winning culture we pride ourselves on," commented head coach Ashely Mossey. "Sam [D'Auteuil] and Julia [Johnson] are no strangers to having strong academics, but now that they have graduated we are excited to see who will be next on this respected list."
