Rhode Island Recognized Dean's List Student-Athletes

KINGSTON, R.I. - The University of Rhode Island Department of Athletics recognized its Dean's List student-athletes on Wednesday night at the Ryan Center. Those earning a 3.30 or better GPA for the 2014 spring and/or fall semesters enjoyed a private reception preceding the URI vs. UMass basketball game and were later recognized on the court - in front of over 7,000 fans - at halftime.

More than 200 student-athletes took part in the festivities, including seniors Caroline Casey (volleyball) and Tim Caputo (baseball), who spoke on behalf of their peers at the pre-game reception.

In total, the Rams placed 145 student-athletes on the Dean's List last spring, and another 164 this fall. Seventy-one student-athletes earned the distinction in both semesters while 25 individuals achieved a perfect 4.00 at least once in 2014.
