SUNY Ulster Community College would like to congratulate seven student athletes for their extraordinary success, as they received NJCAA Academic All American status for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Women’s Volleyball player, Delaney Malak (Rondout Valley HS) led all student athletes with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Other student athletes recognized by the NJCAA were; Misael Villa (M. Soccer, Kingston HS),  Erica Prindle (W. Volleyball, Kingston HS),  Katelynn Slater (W. Volleyball, Wawarsing Christian Academy HS), Keith Kortright (Cross Country, Rondout Valley HS), Mohammed Khan (Wrestling, New Paltz HS), and Nicholas Fulford (Baseball, Onteora HS).

The Ulster Community College Athletic Department implemented mandatory study hall two seasons ago and increased progress reporting which has shown vast improvements academically ever since. “We believe in the complete student athlete here at SUNY Ulster. Those who prove they not only can excel on the playing field, but in the classroom as well, will become leaders in our community.” SUNY Ulster Director of Athletics – Matt Brennie
