44 Saint Michael's Student-Athletes Inducted into Honor Societies During 2020-21 School Year

COLCHESTER, Vt. - Forty-four Saint Michael's College student-athletes were inducted into 14 different academic honor societies during the 2020-21 school year, including five into Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest and largest academic honor society. Founded in 1776, it promotes excellence in the liberal arts and sciences.

Nineteen of the Purple Knights' 21 programs had at least one inductee during the 2020-21 school year, with women's cross country and Nordic skiing - both of which are coached by Molly Peters - leading the way with six apiece. Field hockey (5), women's soccer (5), women's lacrosse (4), men's basketball (3) and women's volleyball (3) also all had at least three.
