The ACHA has released its list of Academic All Americans for the 2011 - 2012 school year. Xavier is proud to announce that Seniors Joe Bauer and Connor Barnes as well juniors Nate Han and Malachi Henry earned the privelage of being named to this esteemed group. Eligibility requirements include a GPA over 3.2 and the player to be at least a junior. The average GPA for the Muskies players named to the team is 3.7.
This is the most players ever to earn this honor in the same year with both Bauer and Barnes being two time AAA. "It is no coincidence that these same players who are leaders in the class room are also leaders on the ice. All of them have been a captain for us. Above all, these are four great kids. Not an ounce of arrogance among them. Just four rock solid kids who we are very lucky to have" said coach Driscoll.
