BRENHAM, Texas -- Ninety-four Blinn College student-athletes continued the College’s long tradition of competitive and academic success in Fall 2013 to earn recognition on the Don Wilhelm Athletic Director’s Honor Roll.
To be eligible, students must complete at least 12 credit hours and maintain a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA). Ten students qualified with a 4.0 GPA, and the baseball team had the most student-athletes recognized with 24.
“For our student-athletes to get where they want to go, they have to be successful in the classroom, too,” said Athletic Director Scott Schumacher. “These 94 athletes understand that and have worked hard to balance their academic and competitive responsibilities.”
Student-athletes with 4.0 GPAs were football’s William Janosek and Logan Vinklarek; men’s basketball’s Lionheart Leslie; baseball’s Reed Robinson, Jacob Sarabia and Weston Wick; softball’s Marissa Purcell; cheer’s Mia Garcia and Leslie Hilbun; and dance’s Katarina Unger.
The honor roll is named after Don Wilhelm, an NJCAA Hall of Famer who served as Blinn’s athletic director for 10 years.
Blinn College features one of the most storied athletic programs in the nation, capturing 27 NJCAA national championships since 1987, including the 2013 volleyball title. For more information on Blinn athletics, visit www.buccaneersports.com.
