Josh Angle earns Academic All-America Team Member of the Year Award
Senior guard Josh Angle ’23 of the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men’s basketball team earned the Division III Academic All-America Team Member of the Year Award from the College Sports Communicators, the organization announced.
The Academic All-America teams, chosen by CSC (formerly CoSIDA), honor student-athletes who achieve high levels of success both academically and athletically. Angle, an economics and finance major at Claremont McKenna, was the NCAA Division III men's basketball player who the committee felt best embodied both of those qualities.
On the court, Angle was a first-team All-SCIAC selection for the second year in a row, and also earned first-team all-region honors from D3hoops.com, which was also announced March 14. He was a second-team all-district selection from the National Association of Basketball Coaches last year (this year’s awards are pending) and twice was named to the D3hoops.com Team of the Week.
Academically, Angle is a Robert Day Scholar in the Claremont McKenna economics department, and will graduate this spring with both a bachelor's degree in economics and a master's degree in finance. Studying in an accelerated program, Angle carries a 3.94 GPA, which ranks fourth among all student-athletes in the Class of 2023 at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, including second among students who have spent four years at Claremont McKenna.
