CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman forward Clare McClintock has been named a 2013 Division I Scholar of Distinction, and the Harvard field hockey team received the 2013 Gladiator by SGI / NFHCA Division I National Academic Team Award, the NFHCA has announced. Along with McClintock's recognition and the team award, 12 Crimson were named to the National Academic Squad for their efforts off the field, the second most in the Ivy League.
McClintock is one of three players from the Ancient Eight to be named a Scholar of Distinction, joining Danielle Consentino of Columbia and Katherine Weeks of Cornell. The 82 total Scholars of Distinction were honored by the NFHCA for achieving a cumulative GPA of 3.90 or higher through the first semester of the 2013-14 academic year.
The National Academic Squad recognizes those student-athletes who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or higher through the first semester of the 2013-14 academic year, while the team award recognizes those institutions that achieved a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher during the fall 2013 semester.
Seniors Jenn Hatfield and Rebecca Houser represented Harvard as four-year recipients of the distinction, and are both joined on the squad by juniors Kaitlyn Boudah, Catriona McDonald, Caitlin Rea; sophomores Bri Atkins and Dina Sinno; and freshmen Kyla Cordrey, Sarah Finnemore, Clare McClintock, Annie Morefield, and Elizabeth Warner.
