John Mascioli, a graduate of Archmere Academy, has been named to the Atlantic 10 Conference cross country All-Academic Team, the league announced today. Mascioli is a sophomore at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
The All-Academic Team was selected based on performance in the classroom and on the trails. Runners must carry a grade-point average of 3.0 for their entire academic career. Mascioli finished 17th at the Atlantic 10 championships on Nov. 1 with an 8k time of 25:11.4 to help the Hawks to a third-place finish. As a freshman, he was named the conference’s Most Outstanding Rookie Performer.
The Wilmington native, a chemistry major, set new personal records in the 8.4k and 10k this season and was St. Joe’s consistent No. 3 runner this fall. The team will conclude its season this Saturday at the IC4A Championships in the Bronx, N.Y., at Van Cortlandt Park.
