Albany, N.Y. – State University of New York Chancellor Robert L. King announced on Wednesday, April 28 that five University at Albany student-athletes are recipients of the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award. UAlbany athletes honored are Victor Camacho (football), Rhonda Corcoran (women’s field hockey), Jill Friedman (women’s golf), Kevin Rae (men’s lacrosse) and Paul Roche (men’s track & field).


The Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award recognizes a combination of academic excellence and outstanding athletic achievement. The winners were selected by the athletic directors at SUNY’s Division I institutions. The awards program, co-sponsored by USA Today, takes place this evening at the State University Plaza in Albany.


Camacho, a senior from New York City, has a 3.77 cumulative grade point average in business administration with a finance concentration. He had a team-high 94 tackles from his inside linebacker position in leading UAlbany to a share of its second consecutive Northeast Conference championship in 2003. An All-NEC selection, Camacho was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America national first team, and was the NEC’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year in football.


Corcoran, a senior from Camden, N.Y., has a 3.80 GPA in psychology. She served as a co-captain on the UAlbany field hockey team, and was a starter in 18 of 19 games played as a defender. She was chosen to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association National All-Academic Team.


Friedman, a junior golfer from Liverpool, N.Y., posted a 3.64 GPA in business administration. She tied for 11th at last weekend’s Northeast Championships, and is averaging 85.4 strokes per round during the fall-spring schedule. The Great Danes will compete at the first-ever America East Conference championships on May 3-4.


Rae, a junior goalkeeper on the men’s lacrosse team from Yorktown Heights, N.Y., is majoring in business administration/finance and owns a 3.28 GPA. He ranks 12th among the NCAA Division I leaders with a .600 save percentage, plus leads the America East in saves at 14.5 per game. Rae, who tied a season-best with 19 saves against Syracuse last Saturday, has twice been chosen as the conference’s player of the week this spring.


Roche, a senior from Niskayuna, N.Y., has a 3.07 GPA in economics with minors in psychology and business administration. He won the long jump with a leap of 23-feet, 2.5-inches at the 2004 America East Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships. Roche was also second in the 55-meter hurdles, as the Great Danes captured their second consecutive conference indoor team title.
