Eastern Berks Athletes Recognized for Scholarship

Nine eastern Berks County college athletes – all residents of Boyertown, Bally, and Douglassville – have also been recognized for their knowledge and academic performance by five different institutions in announcements issued as recently as Thursday (Aug. 11, 2022).

Extending congratulations to local scholar-athletes were the:

  • Division 2 Athletic Directors Association, which granted its “academic achievement award status” to Anna DeRafelo of Boyertown;
  • Old Dominion Athletic Conference, which conferred Academic All-ODAC honors to Ashley Benoit of Douglassville and Raeanne King of Bally;
  • Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, identifying Kylie Wood, Anna DeRafelo, and Ryan Foskey, all of Boyertown, and Madison Griffin of Douglasville as among its scholar-athletes for the 2021-22 academic year; and
  • Middle Atlantic Conference, adding Kyle Golden, Ryan Miller, and Mary McClelland, all of Douglassville, to its winter and spring academic honor rolls.

To be eligible for these honors, all were required to meet or exceed specific grade-point averages and maintain a specific number of credit hours during the periods for which designations were made.
