The Eagles saw an additional five members honored as honorable mentions: Shelby Frugé, Lara Gemar, Amelia Hartje, Camille Jablonski and Katie Kushner.

In addition, both the Emory Men’s and Women’s teams were named CSCAA Scholar All-America Teams after recording GPAs higher than 3.0 for the past academic school year. The women posted a collective 3.65 while the men average a 3.36 GPA.
