HC Athletes Receive National Academic Awards


The NJCAA National Office in Colorado Springs, Colo., recently released the names of the 2012-13 NJCAA Academic Award recipients, and Hill College had three athletes and three teams honored.

“I am excited our athletes at Hill College have accomplished this feat,” Athletic Director Paul Brown said. “In collegiate athletics, education is number one, and while we have been successful on the courts and fields, these achievements emphasize exactly what we are trying to instill in our athletes – education!”

Cayleigh Drake (volleyball, 3.88), Jodi Ekster (softball, 3.88) and Camryn Kazmierski (volleyball, 3.86) received the Superior Academic Achievement award for having a 3.80 GPA or better.

Hill College also had three teams named All-Academic teams for the 2012-13 academic year (3.00 GPA or higher): volleyball (3.26), baseball (3.06) and softball (3.02).
