RADNOR, Pa. (November 13, 2006) — Cabrini College senior Brent Benner, the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC) scoring champion on the field and a dean's-list student off, has been named to the ESPN The Magazine all-academic team for the Mid-Atlantic region.
Benner, a forward from East Greenville, Pa., and Upper Perkiomen High, made the College Division second team for District 2, which includes Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. The College Division takes in Division II, Division III and NAIA schools.
Benner, an exercise science major with a 3.47 GPA, is the only PAC player on the squad and one of only two from a Philadelphia-area school.
Last fall, Benner made the Philadelphia Inquirer's Academic All-Area team, beating out players from Division I schools like Penn and Drexel.
