Kings Park High alum Nicki Cronin, a senior on the Muhlenberg College track and field team was named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll and Spring All-Sportsmanship Team after an excellent outdoor season.
To be named to the Academic Honor Roll, a student must be a sophomore or higher in class standing, a starter or key reserve on her team and carry at least a 3.40 cumulative grade-point average. Created by the CC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, the All-Sportsmanship Team includes a member from each team, selected by coaches and teammates, who displayed good sportsmanship throughout the season.
A physics major and double minor in Spanish and mathematics, Cronin made the Academic Honor Roll for the ninth time at Muhlenberg. The distance runner turned in a strong spring season, highlighted by a fifth-place finish and an ECAC-qualifying performance in the 1,500 at the CC Outdoor Championships, in which she jumped into fourth on Muhlenberg’s all-time performance list with a time of 4:36.76. She finished 11th in the event at the ECAC Championships. Cronin also ran the second leg of the ECAC-qualifying 4x400-meter relay team that produced a fourth-place showing.
Cronin was also recently honored by the Lehigh Valley Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (LVAIAW). Among seven area schools, she was selected as the region’s top athlete in cross country.
Cronin finished her career ranked inside the top five all-time at Muhlenberg in the 800, 1,500, 5,000 and the 4x400- and 4x800-meter relays. She also holds school records in the indoor 4x800-meter relay and the distance medley relay.
