Three players earn Daktronics Scholar-Athlete honors
Three members of the Lewis-Clark State College women’s basketball team have been named 2011 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes, NAIA officials announced on Monday.
Senior Madison Mendezona, an Elementary Education major, and juniors, Jasmine Stohr and Tasha Bishop were honored for LCSC. Stohr also is an Elementary Education major, while Bishop is a Sports Administration major.
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.
LCSC tied Westminster for the most Scholar-Athletes in the Frontier Conference. LCSC has now had eight players honored as NAIA Scholar-Athletes over the past four seasons.
The NAIA honored 127 women’s basketball players this season with the honor.
The Warriors completed their season last week in the NAIA National Tournament, making it to the round of Sweet 16. LCSC posted a 29-6 record and won its fourth straight conference tournament title.
