TROY, N.Y. – A school-record 28 Union College student-athletes were recognized for academic success by earning spots on the Liberty League Winter All-Academic Teams, the conference announced on Thursday.

The Liberty League’s winter championship sports include men’s and women’s basketball, swimming & diving and squash.
