Bost, Gibbons Earn Prestigious Academic All-America Honors

Thanks to their outstanding performances on the field and in the classroom this fall, the College Sports Information Directors of America have named Lebanon Valley's Sammy Bost and Nate Gibbons CoSIDA Academic All-America. Bost was named to the women's soccer academic all-America first-team, while Gibbons earned inclusion on the men's soccer academic all-America third-team.

Bost and Gibbons are the 26th and 27th academic all-Americans in school history, respectively. Bost is the first LVC student-athlete to earn multiple academic all-America honors (softball, women's soccer) in the same calendar year since J.D. Byers '05 (men's basketball, men's golf) accomplished the feat in 2004. She is just the second Dutchman to accomplish the impressive feat.

Gibbons is one of the College's prestigious Allwein Scholars, and carries an impressive 3.94 cumulative GPA as a physics major. He was named to the MAC Commonwealth All-Conference Second-Team for his efforts this fall and was pegged a CoSIDA Academic All-District pick last month. Gibbons was named to the MAC Academic Honor Roll in 2015.
