2011-12 LSC Scholar-Athletes announced

The annual Lone Star Conference Scholar-Athlete Award winners for 2011-12 were announced on Thursday, with 20 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 11 member institutions, this year’s recipients represent 13 of the 16 sports that are sponsored by the conference. Track & Field had the most Scholar-Athletes with four, while football, baseball and softball had three selections each.
The 2011-12 Scholar-Athletes led their respective teams to five conference championships and two tournament titles. 
Texas is home for 15 of the recipients, with one each from four other states – Colorado, New Mexico, Nebraska and Arizona - along with Brazil.
