Sun, Jun. 3, 2012 - [Track & Field]
The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Track and Field program is wrapped up its 2011-2012 season as select athletes competed at the 2012 NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships. While those championships are battled for, other awards and honors are still being given out to those who have earned them. Two Patriot ladies have shown their dedication on the playing surface as well as in the classroom and for that have earned some distinction from the NAIA.
Senior Lauren Kachel (Pickerington, OH) and junior Darcy Mascotti (Bellbrook, OH) have been named 2012 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes.
Nominated by each institution's head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and have achieved junior academic status to qualify. There were 362 female student-athletes that were named 2012 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes for Track and Field.
Kachel and Mascotti both competed at the NAIA National Championships.
