MARSHFIELD, Mass.- The New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) announced the Fall Academic All-Conference Team on Wednesday. Eastern Nazarene earned a total of 17 recipients as the NECC honored a record 211 student-athletes.

The men's soccer team and women's volleyball team led the way for Eastern Nazarene by landing four student-athletes to the Academic All-Conference team each.

The Lions' women's cross-country, men's golf, and women's soccer programs all garnered three honorees.

Headlining the Academic All-Conference honorees were All-NECC first team selections Courtney McCarthy (Merrimack, N.H.) and Jacob Waldroop (Newland, N.C.) as well as All-NECC second team performer Connor Hudson-Bryant (Weymouth, Mass.).
