Daily Staff Reports – firstname.lastname@example.org
WINCHESTER — Shenandoah University golf coach Scott Singhass announced Tuesday that he is adding three student-athletes into his program for the 2013-14 season.
The class consists of one freshman and two transfers.
The freshman, Brennan Lloyd, won both district and regional titles last season for Waynesboro High School, as well as a pair of VSGA junior event victories.
Doc Shulte and Adam Flees transfer into the program from Methodist University and SW Georgia State, respectively.
Shulte helped Battlefield High School to district and regional championships in addition to a fourth-place showing at the Class AAA state tournament in the fall of 2011.
These three will add to the 11 returnees for Singhass.
“With 14 guys on the team, we are going to have some great battles in qualifying,” Singhass stated in a school news release. “We are going to get right after it when we start in the fall and I expect us to be compete every day during the season.”
The fall season begins in mid-September at the Tom Kinder Memorial hosted by Bridgewater College.
Women’s track and field
NEW ORLEANS — The Shenandoah women’s track and field program has earned All-Academic team honors in selections announced Tuesday by the USTFCCCA.
The Hornet women were one of 148 Division III teams nationally to earn at least a 3.1 cumulative GPA this past semester.
Additionally, rising senior Jaclyn Mohlmann grabbed individual All-Academic honors. Mohlmann, who had a 3.53 GPA as a Kinesiology/Sports Management major, qualified by earning her GPA and finishing in the top 35 nationally in the heptathlon.
The 14-woman squad achieved a 3.23 cumulative GPA, which also placed it second of the four Old Dominion Athletic Conference schools that earned the accolade.
SU fell just behind Washington and Lee but ahead of both Bridgewater and Eastern Mennonite among the four league schools to be recognized.
Eight of the 14 women posted at least a 3.1 with three at 3.7 or better.
This is the 10th time in program history that either the women’s cross country or track & field team has earned USTFCCCA academic honors.
