Thursday, January 24, 2008

ELMHURST, Ill.—The Summit League office released its Academic All-League Teams today for the fall 2007 semester and Centenary has 37 members on the list. To be eligible for the award, student-athletes have to earn a 3.0 grade point average or better for the semester and must use a year of eligibility.


The Ladies soccer team led the way with the most honorees from one organization with 12 members given the accolade. Seniors Cori Dullnig, Bre Fletcher, and Ali Hilsher set fine examples for the rest of the squad while junior Ashley Lowe, sophomores Lauren Cheaney, Kate Donnelly, Stefani Robbs, Kristine Weaver, and freshmen Katy DePew, Shelby Epperson, Emily McManus, and Candace Rushing were all given the award as well.


The Gents soccer team had a fine showing with 10 selections to the Academic All-League Team. Those picked included seniors Osama Buazza, John Marquart, and Aron Taylor, junior Gabe Silvas, sophomore Todd Faulkinberry, and freshmen Dustin Dingenthal, Zach Farrar, Dragan Hinic, Brian Penner, and Keegan Walhood.


Although not as big of a number as the women’s and men’s soccer teams, the women’s cross country team had six members selected for the honor, comprising almost 50 percent of the team. The men’s cross country team had four of its total of seven participants chosen for the honor. Selected cross country members are seniors Jennifer Quillin, Lori VonPingel, and Laura Way, junior Jessica Brown, and sophomores Sunny LaGrone and Cara Miccoli for the women. Seniors William Fell and Gerrit Moeller and juniors Saul Castaneda and Michael Haydel were recognized for the men’s team.


The Ladies volleyball team carried eight players on the roster this year and five of them were given the Academic All-League distinction. They are senior Lindsay Bekelja, juniors Danielle Bochat and Ashlee Freeman, and freshmen Stephanie Hobaugh and Elise Sisson.


Overall, 49 percent of Centenary’s total of 76 student-athletes that participated in the fall were named to the Academic All-League Team by the Summit League.
