Seven student-athletes from Rockland Community College have been awarded All-Region and/or All-Conference academic recognition for the Fall 2018 semester. RCC competes in Region XV of the NJCAA Div. III and the Mid-Hudson Conference.

Landing a berth on both the All-Region (3.25 GPA or higher) and All-Conference (3.0 GPA or higher) academic teams were volleyball players Deven Lawson, a sophomore outside hitter out of Nanuet HS; sophomore right-side player Danielle McManus from Clarkstown South HS; freshman setter Elizabeth Miñano out of Tuxedo (N.Y.) HS; and sophomore middle blocker Emily Schmidt from North Rockland HS; sophomore Aaron Jones from the men's soccer team; and sophomore cross country runner Jonathan Rose, from Chester, N.Y. In addition, freshman soccer player Steeve Cadet reaped All-Conference accolades.

Schmidt was previously named first-team All-Region and All-Conference for her exploits on the volleyball court, while Miñano gained second-team All-Conference laurels.

The women's volleyball team, under ninth-year coach Erik Ellingsen, posted a 14-8 overall record and advanced to the Mid-Hudson Conference semifinals and Region XV quarterfinals. The men's soccer team, under third-year coach Danny Samimi, reached the Region XV semifinals for the second time in three years.
