Eleven Winter @OhioBobcats Student-Athletes Earn 2017 @MACSports Distinguished Scholar Athlete Recognition

April 20, 2017

MAC Release

CLEVELAND -- Eleven student-athletes from Ohio's five winter sports teams have garnered 2017 Mid-American Conference Distinguished Scholar Athlete recognition, as announced by the league office on Thursday (April 20).

The Distinguished Scholar Athlete is a third-year award given to students who have excelled in athletics and academics. Following each season from the fall sports schedule, any student with a 3.20 GPA and participation in at least 50 percent of the contests was automatically named to the previously announced Academic All-MAC Team from each sport. Also, first-year students and junior college transfers in their first year of residence were not eligible for the award.

From the Academic All-MAC Teams, the faculty athletic representatives selected the 'best of the best' of our Academic All-MAC Teams to be honored with Distinguished Scholar Athlete Award for the 2016-17 season. The number of Distinguished Scholar Athletes from each sport were equivalent to the number of first-team selections or 33% of nominees, whichever was greater.

From Women's Indoor Track and Field, sophomores Alyssa Atkinson (Granville, Ohio), Emily Deering (Geneva, Ohio) and Avery Kerns (Galena, Ohio) and juniors Cassidy Cleland (Reedsville, Ohio), Courtney Guiley (Louisville, Ohio) and Christina Seas (West Union, Ohio) all earned the recognition for the first time.

Meanwhile, from Women's Swimming and Diving, senior Carrie Dukes (Monkton, Md.) was recognized for the third-straight year. Senior Myriah Ariza-Balter (Evergreen, Colo.) and junior Elena Patz earned a spot for the second consecutive year, while junior Hannah Shinn (Waterloo, Ill.) and sophomore Corrin Van Lanen (Green Bay, Wis.) were first time honorees.

Later this spring, the MAC will announce the Distinguished Scholar Athletes from the remaining eight spring sports sponsored by the Conference.
