Three Local Student-Athletes Win Division 2 Awards

BLOOMSBURG PA – Three area residents – from Pottstown, Harleysville, and Collegeville, respectively, are among more than 157 student-athletes attending Commonwealth University at Bloomsburg who have received academic achievement awards from the Division 2 Athletic Directors Association, the university said Thursday (Aug. 11, 2022).

Local winners are:

  • Patrick Agnew of Pottstown, a member of the university’s men’s swimming team;
  • Justin Ziegler of Harleysville, a member of the men’s cross country, and track and field teams; and
  • Elizabeth Turner of Collegeville, a member of the women’s swimming team.

The award presentations, now in their 15th year, are made to student-athletes who maintained grade point averages of 3.5 or higher during the 2021-22 academic year, and attended a minimum of two years (four semesters) of college-level classes.

Commonwealth University represents an “integration” of Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, and Mansfield universities under a single banner, which became effective in July 2022.
