Two members of The University of Scranton men’s golf team were among 670 student-athletes honored for excellence in the classroom by the Empire 8 Conference.

Freshman Eric Montella (Waverly/Scranton Preparatory) and junior Dan Penetar (Scranton/Scranton Preparatory) were named to the conference’s President List for the 2013 spring semester.

To receive this honor, a student-athlete must maintain a 3.75-or-higher grade point average for the semester.

In addition to his exploits in the classroom, Montella had a quite a season on the links. He earned second-team all-Empire 8 honors after finishing in a tie for ninth-place with a 72-hole score of 323 to help the Royals of veteran head coach Ed Karpovich to a second-place team finish.

He shot a then season-low round of 77 in the second round of the Empire 8 tournament Sept. 16, 2012 at the Yahnundasis Golf Club in New Hartford, N.Y., and matched that effort in a victory over FDU-Florham April 1 at Morris County Golf Club in Morristown, N.J. For the season, Montella average 80.42 strokes per round.

The Royals are an affiliate member of the Empire 8 Conference in the sport of men’s golf. Sixteen of Scranton’s 18 intercollegiate sports for men and women compete in the Landmark Conference.
