SUMMERDALE, PA (03/27/2013)(readMedia)-- Connor Arnold of Harrisburg, Pa., a Central Penn College criminal justice administration student, was named to the men's United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Division II National All-Academic Team. Players are nominated by coaches and selected by the USCAA.
This is Arnold's first year with the Central Penn Knights, and already he has made a name for himself. Arnold is best known for his long-range three pointers, as he leads the team in this area.
"When one of our starting players became injured," says Athletic Director Ed Liesch, "he filled in nicely, helping the team increase in stats and victories."
