With Friday’s release of 2012 men’s and women’s soccer Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes, Concordia pushed its Scholar-Athlete total to 19 for the fall of 2012. Concordia junior Nathan Douglas and seniors Skylar Lewis and Chris Podlich were named men’s soccer Scholar-Athletes by the NAIA on Friday. Podlich also earned the same honor in 2011.
A total of 315 NAIA men’s soccer student-athletes nationally received the honor. Westminster (Utah) led the nation with nine Scholar-Athletes.
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 to qualify for this honor.
Honorees for football and volleyball will be released on the day prior to each sport’s respective national championship.
