Five Huskies Earn WCHA Scholar-Athlete Honors

by Ian Marks, assistant director, athletic communications and marketing

The Western Collegiate Hockey Association recently announced that five Michigan Tech hockey players were among of 90 male and female student-athletes to receive WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award.

Corson Cramer (mechanical engineering) and Bennett Royer (business administration) are two-time award recipients. Jordan Baker (business administration), Kevin Genoe (civil engineering) and Brett Olson (exercise science) earned the award for the first time.

To earn recognition as a WCHA Scholar-Athlete, student-athletes must have completed at least one year of residency at their present institution prior to the current academic year and have earned a grade-point average of at least 3.50 on a 4.0 scale.

"The Western Collegiate Hockey Association is both thrilled and exceptionally proud to announce this group of men's and women's WCHA Scholar-Athletes for the 2010-11 season," said WCHA commissioner Bruce McLeod, associate commissioner Sara Martin, University of Alaska-Anchorage faculty representative Steve Strom (chair, men's league) and University of North Dakota faculty representative Sue Jeno (chair, women's league) in a joint statement.

"This annual announcement of our scholar-athletes has become one of the highlights for the entire Western Collegiate Hockey Association family of student-athletes, coaches and administrators and gives us an opportunity to showcase the fact that along with being great athletes on the ice, these honorees are truly exceptional students off the ice. Together, they represent the very best in collegiate athletics."

Michigan Tech's group of WCHA Scholar-Athletes will be recognized and honored on-ice with a commemorative plaque during the North Dakota series.
