That growth nationally continued here at Sinclair as the Pride had 10 individuals earning all-academic honors compared to just 7 last year. Not only did we have an increase in individual honors, but we also had two teams once again earning all-academic team distinctions.
This is the sixth consecutive year for the volleyball team earning All-Academic team honors and back to back All-Academic honors for the baseball team.

The NJCAA has recognized teams with an overall grade-point average of at least a 3.0 for their sport and gender with the NJCAA All-Academic Team Award.
