CWC Athletes Awarded for Academic Excellence

CWC Athletes Awarded for Academic Excellence

Thirty-four Central Wyoming College athletes were awarded Region IX Academic Awards for maintaining a grade point average (GPA) of 3.25 or higher, and 21 athletes were winners of the NJCAA Academic Student-Athlete Award.  This award requires a student-athlete to maintain a 3.6-3.79 GPA to make Third Team, a 3.8-3.99 GPA to make Second Team and a 4.0 GPA to make First Team.  Two teams have been nominated for the NJCAA Academic Team of the Year Award including women's basketball and women's cross country.  Karson Bradley and Cole Trainor have been nominated for the 2019 NIRA Scholar American Award.  Both Rodeo students have maintained a cumulative 3.5 GPA and have earned at least 1 point during the 2018-19 academic year.

"Our student-athletes have done a great job in the classroom this year.  All students attend CWC to get an eduation that they will use the rest of their lifetime, and our coaching staff does a good job emphasizing that.  I am proud of our coaches, faculty and student-athletes for all of their dedication in helping students reach their goals and achieve success." -Steve Barlow, Dean of Students/AD
