Seven Warriors earn academic honors
Four members of the Lewis-Clark State College men’s cross country team and three from the women’s team were honored by being named 2010 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes, the NAIA announced on Friday.
To qualify for the honor, a student-athlete must be nominated by an institution’s head coach and the student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of a 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and be at least a junior in academic standing.
Earning honors for the Warrior men are senior Mickael Testa of Asnieres, France, and juniors Grant Eldredge of Portland, Ore., Sean Hagan of Bend, Ore., and Dave Marks of Lake Oswego, Ore. Marks is a junior in academic standing, but only a sophomore in athletic eligibility.
Earning the honors for the Warrior women are seniors Jessie Gulsvig of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Casey Hampton of Bonners Ferry, along with junior Kelsey Klettke of Vancouver, Wash.
LCSC had the most male runners honored among all teams in the Frontier Conference and tied Carroll for the most female runners honored.
Overall, the NAIA honored 184 male and 306 female runners.
Both Warrior teams are in Vancouver, Wash., to take part in the NAIA national championships on Saturday.
