Rappaport and his teammate, John Donnely were among 700 other college athletes across the NCAA and the NAIA divisions to receive this honor. "It's a testament to their work ethics and being able to maintain a high GPA while doing their on-court responsibilities," Vassar Head Coach B.J. Dunne said.
In order to make the Honors Court, Rappaport, a political science major, had to have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher. "The amount of time we ask our guys to spend on the court and in the gym is a lot," Coach Dunne said. "Seeing them being able to attack their school work like we expect them to attack their work on the court, is really something something special."
