MEDIA, Pa. -- Three Penn State Brandywine student-athletes were recently recognized for their academic prowess as the trio earned National Academic Team accolades from the United States Collegiate Athletic Association.
Sophomores Arianna Segich (Ocean City, N.J./Ocean City), Josh Burton (West Chester, Pa./PA Cyber Charter) and John Li (Upper Darby, Pa./Upper Darby) all earned the award, which honors USCAA student-athletes who have compiled a grade-point average of at least 3.50 and reached sophomore athletic and academic standing.
Segich, a communications major, helped the Brandywine women's soccer team claim the Penn State University Athletic Conference championship and post a 14-3 overall record. She earned Second Team All-PSUAC honors after recording seven goals and five assists as the team's fourth-leading scorer. Last spring, Segich was a first team all-conference performer for the Brandywine softball team, which won its second consecutive league title.
Burton also won a PSUAC title this fall as the Lions' men's soccer team captured its third conference crown during the last four years. An information, sciences and technology major, Burton appeared in 18 games for Brandywine, tallying two goals and one assist for five points. He has totaled four goals and two assists during his two seasons with the team.
Li, who is majoring in biology, qualified for the USCAA National Championship for the second consecutive year this fall. He placed fifth at the conference championship meet, earning first team all-league honors for the second time. Li, who owns four of the top five 8K times in school history, set the program record at the Cairn Highlander Invitational in September.
