The Engineers saw eight student-athletes earn the distinction for the first time. Will Reilly was named to the Commissioner’s List, earning a 4.0 grade point average in both semesters of his senior year.
Senior defenseman TJ Samec (St. Paul, MN/Brookings Blizzard) and junior goaltender Linden Marshall (Victoria, BC/Trail Smoke Eaters) were the two engineering majors to make the list, while the other 26 are Business and Management majors, including four-time recipient Patrick Polino (Buffalo, NY/Lincoln Stars). Seven freshmen earned the award and now have a chance to be four-year recipients during their careers.
