Northwest Bearcats

Student-Athlete Academic Recognition

MARYVILLE, Mo. – One hundred and ninety-nine Northwest Missouri State student-athletes were honored by the MIAA for hard work in the classroom as a part of the league’s 2012-13 academic awards announced by the league office.

The total number of student-athletes honored nearly doubled last year's total of 110. The Bearcats saw 14 student-athletes earn MIAA Scholar Athlete Award honors finishing the academic year with at least a 3.50 GPA and received All-MIAA honors during the season.

Northwest also saw 177 student-athletes earn a spot on the MIAA Academic Honor Roll, finishing the academic year with at least a 3.00 GPA.

Eight Bearcats from four separate sports also earned MIAA Scholar-Athlete honors by posting a flawless 4.0 GPA for the academic year: Ryan Cox (men’s cross country), Maci Hicks (women’s cross country), Katti Carroll (women’s cross country), Brooklyn Ellis (women’s cross country), Jordan Esry (women’s cross country), Jill Kieffer, (soccer), Alexis Bartek (women’s tennis) and Stephanie Mannix (women’s tennis).

Below is the complete list of Bearcats earning MIAA Scholar-Athlete Award and MIAA Academic Honor Roll:
