Ten MSU Student Athletic Trainers Earn LSC Academic Honors

Ten Midwestern State students were recognized by the Lone Star Conference on Wednesday as the league announced its annual Athletic Training Student Academic Award winners for the 2014-15 academic year.

"This is a credit to the quality of students we are able to draw into an athletic training program that is continuing to grow," MSU Head Athletic Trainer Gary Diehm said. "We are pushing through great students into the profession each year."

Honored seniors include Daren Roach (Caribbean, Texas), Jacob Herring (Henrietta, Texas), Victoria Shores (Burkburnett, Texas) and Sarita Adhikary (Kathmandu, Nepal).

Juniors include Austin Bauer (Rowlett, Texas), Amy Simmons (Wichita Falls) and Jaycee Alvarez (Houston).

Sophomores include Briana Rojas (Mansfield, Texas), Delize Paul (Coulibistrie, Dominica) and Jessica Geis (Archer City, Texas).

Each academic year, the LSC recognizes student athletic trainers who devote several hours to assist with the operation of the athletics department while also finding the time to excel in the classroom.

To be eligible for LSC academic honors, student athletic trainers must carry at least a 3.30 grade-point average with a minimum of 24 semester hours at the nominating institutions. The qualifications mirror those required of student-athletes to gain LSC All-Academic recognition.
