Notre Dame Duo Make The Grade

Aug. 2, 2010

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Two Notre Dame student-athletes garnered a prominent place in the summer 2010 issue of the NCAA Champion magazine, which recently was published. Senior football offensive lineman Chris Stewart (Spring, Texas) and senior men’s basketball forward Tim Abromaitis (Unionville, Conn.) were featured on page 16 of the magazine for their academic and athletic accomplishments, with both men recently having earned their undergraduate degrees from Notre Dame in less than four years despite rigorous time demands with the respective teams.

Stewart, who has started the past 22 games for the Fighting Irish, earned his bachelor’s degree in history from the College of Arts and Letters and will attend Notre Dame Law School this fall. He is believed to be the first active Fighting Irish football player ever to attend the law school.

Meanwhile, Abromaitis, an ESPN The Magazine first-team Academic All-American, BIG EAST Conference Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year and an honorable mention all-conference selection last year, graduated in three years from the Mendoza College of Business with a degree in finance. He now is enrolled in an accelerated MBA program that will run through May 2011.
