Micah Kohlwey has been named a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete for the second season in a row, as announced by the NAIA on Monday. The Seward native is majoring in exercise science.

In order to be nominated by an institution’s head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status. A total of 131 Division II men’s basketball student-athletes across the nation were named scholar-athletes by the NAIA.
