HANOVER, N.H.- Graduating men's soccer player Adam Rice (Manalapan, N.J.) was honored with the prestigious Barrett All-Around Achievement Cup at the 2012 Senior Day Class exercises held prior to Commencement this past weekend. Rice becomes the second men's soccer player to earn the award joining Derek Stenquist who claimed the honor in 2010.
Rice has been the standard for excellence during his Dartmouth career both on and off the field. He is the director of Athletes United and has worked with Summer Enrichment at Dartmouth. An exceptional student, he maintains a 3.97 grade point average and was the recipient of the Class of 1948 Scholar-Athlete Award last year, plus was his team's Norman Grant Clark Award winner this year for his contributions to his team on and off the field.
Athletically, Rice has been a significant contributor to his team's success since his freshman year, earning four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and twice advancing to the Sweet 16.
The Barrett All-Around Achievement Cup is awarded annually to the male in the senior class who shows the greatest promise of becoming a factor in the outside world through strength of character, quality of leadership, record of scholarship and broad achievement and influence among his fellow peers. A gift of John Barrett '89, the Cup was first awarded in 1914.
