These Red Lions were all nominated by their head coaches and met the criteria required of the NAIA Scholar-Athlete Award Program standards.
As stated on the NAIA website (NAIA.org), “The Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete programs recognize excellence in the classroom by NAIA-member student-athletes who are juniors or above in academic standing with a 3.5 cumulative GPA. Students must appear on the eligibility certificate for the sport and have attended two full years as a non-transfer or one full year as a transfer. The awards are given annually to outstanding student-athletes in the classroom in the various sports in which the program is active and their respective teams are eligible for NAIA postseason competition.”
The LCU student-athletes were six of the 382 men’s soccer winners, 588 women’s soccer winners, and 428 volleyball winners from across the more than 250 colleges (more than 65,000 student athletes!) and universities that comprise the National Association of Intercollege Athletics’ (NAIA) membership nationally.
