Sienkiewicz, a junior guard from Cranston, R.I. holds an impressive 4.0 GPA to date while continuing his studies in the Physical Therapy program. Of the six players from District I to earn the honor, Sienkiewicz had the highest GPA. In addition, among the 44 Division III honorees, he was one of only two players to have a perfect grade point average.
In order to qualify for CoSIDA All-Academic status, the student-athlete must be an upper classman with a GPA of 3.30 or above.
Starting 17 games for the Pride this season, Sienkiewicz has posted 8.8 points per game, shooting 48.3% from the floor (49-102) and 40.8% from three-point range (24-59). He has dished out 35 assists this year while committing just 12 turnovers. The junior has scored in double figures eight times this season, including 21 points in the season-opener against Western New England.
Sienkiewicz is now the third Springfield College student-athlete to earn CoSIDA Academic All-District I honors, as women's volleyball's Tessa Smolinski (Hebron, Conn.) and football's Scott Leech (Lincoln, R.I.) both achieved the honor this past fall.
