LSC Scholar Athletes Announced

From the LSC Office

The annual Lone Star Conference Scholar-Athlete Award winners for 2007-08 were announced on Monday, with 29 student-athletes honored by league officials.

Each academic year, the LSC presents a Scholar-Athlete Award to one male and one female student-athlete at each member institution. These student-athletes are selected as representatives of the outstanding accomplishments in athletics, scholarship and leadership that are displayed on each LSC campus during the year.
To be eligible for consideration, student-athletes must have participated at least two years in their sport and must have exhausted their athletic eligibility.

Besides representing each of the league's 15 member institutions, this year's recipients represent 10 of the 16 sports that are sponsored by the conference. Football and softball had the most Scholar-Athletes with seven selections each.

The 2007-08 Scholar-Athletes led their respective teams to six LSC divisional titles and one regular season championship.

Texas is home for 16 of the honorees, with five from Oklahoma, two from New Mexico and one each from Kansas, Colorado, Canada, South Africa, Missouri and Florida.
