(Notre Dame, Ind.) Senior Ty Robbins (Granger, Ind.) has been named a 2011 ACHA Academic All-American. A student-athlete must maintain a 3.5 grade point average and be a junior or senior academic standing to earn the award.
Robbins becomes the first hockey player to earn this honor at Holy Cross. "My discipline was tested and a more well-rounded character has taken shape during my time spent as a student-athlete at HCC," said senior Ty Robbins. "I am extremely proud to be recognized for this achievement, and it is an honor that I also accept with great humility."
This past year Robbins helped lead the Saints to their best finish in program history playing in 26 games netting 10 goals and recording 16 assists. Holy Cross finished the year with a 21 - 8 overall record.
"Being a student-athlete at Holy Cross College is a priceless experience," Robbins said. "As a member of the hockey team and a full-time student at HCC, I had the opportunity to reach my full potential. "
Ty will graduate from Holy Cross this May with a Bachelor of Arts in Business as well as a minor in Global Perspectives.
"Ty Robbins has proven himself to be a winner in all areas of his life," said Head Coach Bill Schmatz. "His family and religious convictions have "Set The Tone" for his success in academics, athletics, and community service. Ty's efforts will leave a positive and lasting impression throughout Holy Cross College."
Robbins becomes the fourth student-athlete to be honored this year for academic success. He joins men's soccer players Jose Rios, Damian Marciniak, and men's basketball player Andrew Tullis.
