Those earning the honors are Hunter Charf, boys golf; Austin Rice, boys golf and music; Trey Svatos, music; Cole Belitz and Ashton Higgins, boys track; and Emma Bixler and Claire Whitesel, girls track.
Students are nominated by their schools for their individual academic excellence, leadership and significant contributions in their NSAA activity.
To be eligible for the honor, students must meet three requirements:
1. A nominated student must be a varsity player or organizational leader who has played a significant role on the team or in the organizational activity during the seasons for which nominations are accepted.
2. A nominated student must have a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average, in all curricular subjects, of 93% or 3.7 on a 4.0-point scale or the equivalent.
