HHS Sisters Balance Academics With Athletics

Two Holmdel High School graduates attending the Rochester Institute of Technology have qualified for the Liberty League’s All-Academic Team.

Jamie Martinez, and Alexa Marinez, are seniors on the women's soccer team. Both are in RIT's new media design program. The two were among 483 athletes that qualified.

The Liberty League's fall championship sports include men's and women's cross country, field hockey, football, men's and women's soccer and volleyball. To be recognized as a member of the All-Academic team, a student-athlete must be a sophomore or higher in class standing with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.20.

"The student-athletes in the Liberty League have consistently performed at high levels academically," said League Commissioner Tracy King. "These young men and women continue to demonstrate that it is possible to not only succeed academically, but to achieve athletically at the highest level in Division III. I congratulate and salute them on their outstanding achievements."

Rochester Institute of Technology offers 24 intercollegiate varsity sports, including 22 at the Division III level and Division I men's and women's ice hockey. For three decades, U.S. News & World Report has ranked RIT among the nation's leading comprehensive universities. RIT's student-athletes are no exception, combining to post a 3.23 grade-point average during the 2012-13 academic year.
