Congratulations to five College of the Ozarks Cross Country runners who were named National Christian College Athletic Association Scholar Athletes:
Bethany Marteney - (Sr. – Riley, KS)
Mason Apperson - (Jr. – Wheatland, MO)
Garrett Pierce - (Jr. – Sandpoint, ID)
Wesley Moore - (Sr. – Poplar Bluff, MO)
Samuel Baumer - (Sr. – Columbia, MO)
In order to be named an NCCAA Scholar Athlete, a student-athlete must be of junior or senior academic status, be an active member of the team, and hold an overall GPA of 3.4 or above.
This is a challenging task for all student-athletes, but especially for College of the Ozarks’ students. In addition to the rigor of the classroom, homework, and the time allocated for practice, travel, and games, C of O student-athletes are also required to work 15 hours per week in an on-campus job.
We are proud of our Cross Country runners who met and exceeded this challenge!
