Sabrina Didas, of Dansville, (Women’s Volleyball) was one of 64 Elmira College student-athletes named to the Empire 8 Conference President’s List.
The E8 Conference recognized the Soaring Eagles on its semi-annual President’s List, which honors student-athletes who achieved a grade-point of 3.75 or higher during the fall term.
A total of 655 student-athletes from the E8’s membership were recognized for their excellence in the classroom this past semester with the President’s List distinction, one of most prestigious honors the conference recognizes. Recipients of this honor must earn a 3.75 grade-point average or higher during the semester, while participating in an NCAA-sponsored sport. In addition, the student-athlete must display positive conduct on and off campus and be enrolled full-time at the member institution.
The Elmira College men’s ice hockey team led the way with nine selections, while the women’s ice hockey team and men’s soccer team each had eight student-athletes receive the honor. Women’s volleyball and field hockey each landed six student-athletes on the President’s List.
