Concordia women’s golf standouts Mackenzie Deutschman and Chelsea Peck have been named 2013 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes, as announced by the NAIA on Thursday. The two seniors also earned the distinction last season.
Deutschman, who hails from North Platte, Neb., majored in early childhood and elementary education. Peck, a native of Lincoln, Neb., majored in accounting and business administration with a finance concentration. Deutschman and Peck were the Bulldogs’ top women’s golfers this past season in terms of lowest average round.
With two women’s golf Scholar-Athletes added to the tally, Concordia now has a total of 44 Scholar-Athletes for the 2012-13 athletics season. Honorees for baseball, softball and track and field have yet to be announced.
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach, 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. A total of 131 NAIA women’s golfers nationally were named Scholar-Athletes.
