Saint Louis University High School alum Sean Meagher receives academic recognition while having a record setting year
Robert Morris University has found a new defensive backbone in Sean Meagher – a 2010 graduate of SLUH in St. Louis. Meagher was awarded the Northeast Conference (NEC) Scholar Athlete of the Year for the 2013 season. In order to be eligible for this award, a student-athlete must have completed 60 semester hours of credit, maintain a minimum GPA of 3.2 and participate with distinction as a member of a varsity team.
Besides his work ethic in the classroom, Meagher has seen his effort pay off on the lacrosse field. In 2013 Meagher set a RMU single season record by recording 38 caused turnovers and became the only Colonial to ever average more than 2 caused turnovers per game. This was one of the reasons Meagher was awarded the NEC Defensive Player of the Year for 2013 as well as being the first RMU long-stick midfielder to ever receive an All-Conference award.
