LSC Academic Awards announced
Angelo State’s Brian Holik and Sara Hooker were named Lone Star Conference Academic Athletes of the Year on Wednesday when league officials announced the LSC’s annual academic awards for men’s and women’s track and field.

Holik was joined by 10 other track and field standouts on the LSC Men’s All-Academic Team, while Hooker, who earned her second straight academic athlete of the year honor, led a group of 11 stars on the LSC Women’s All-Academic Team.

In addition to the 22 men and women on the All-Academic Teams, 21 more student-athletes were recognized on the LSC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

To be eligible for LSC academic honors, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.30 grade point average and have reached sophomore status both athletically and academically. The Academic Player of Year award and All-Academic Team are selected from the list of academically qualified players, with the league’s sports information directors voting on the basis of both academic and athletic achievement. All qualifying student-athletes not selected for the All-Academic Team are then named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

On the men’s team with Holik was teammates Clinton Bippert and Wade Goode, Eastern New Mexico’s Bill Squire and Guy Kcholi, Texas A&M-Commerce’s Brandon Womack, Tyler Tyndell and Robert Reed, Texas A&M-Kingsville’s Daniel Castro and Abilene Christian’s Aaron Cantrell and Landon Ehlers.

Joining with Hooker on the Women’s All-Academic Team were fellow Rambelles Cathyrn Rittenberry, Brittney Heath, Andria Nussey and Kris Crockett, ACU’s Kim Prather, Elizabeth Buyse and Jessica Withrow, TAMUK’s Erica Alvarado and Jessica Martinez and ENMU’s Nicole Reid
