PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- It was announced on Tuesday, May 27 that Providence College sophomore Gladys Ganiel of Harrington, Maine and junior Dylan Williams of Middlesex, England were named to the GTE Academic All-District I Spring At-Large Team.
Ganiel, a political science major, has earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.97 in her first two years at Providence. The sophomore from Harrington, Maine has excelled in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters during the indoor and outdoor track seasons this year. Ganiel earned first place finishes in 3,000 meters at the New England Challenge (January 11) and the 5,000 meters at the University of Connecticut (April 5) and the Brown Invitational (April 20). She also received GTE Academic All-America At-Large Third Team honors in the fall after helping PC finish seventh at the 1996 NCAA Cross Country Championship.
Williams, who is an economics major with a 3.82 cumulative grade point average, helped the PC tennis team earn its second consecutive third-place finish at the BIG EAST Championship in April. He posted a 17-7 mark in the No. 1 singles position. In December, Williams was ranked 14th in Region I in singles play and sixth in Region I in doubles action.
