Cape Cod, MA – Hilbert College women’s soccer player Jessica Macri has been recognized as a 2004-05 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Robbins Scholar-Athlete Institutional Award winner.  Macri was a four-year player for the Hawks before graduating in May with a 3.82 GPA and a degree in Business Administration.

Macri finished her career at Hilbert as the school’s all-time leader in assists (50) and ranks second in points (88).  A four time All-Conference selection, Macri has been a Dean’s list student as well as an All-Conference Academic selection since her freshman year in 2001.

Sponsored by Robbins Sports Surfaces, the Cincinnati-based sports surfaces company, the awards honor the outstanding academic and athletics achievements of student-athletes representing ECAC schools in Divisions I, II and III.  Three committees comprised of athletics administrators will select two award winners in each division to be honored during the ECAC Convention Honors Dinner presented by Jostens on Sunday, September 25. Votes are based on extraordinary achievements in academics, athletics and community service.
