Gymnasts make all-conference academic squad
DeKALB – Northern Illinois University gymnasts Kim Gotlund of Wadsworth, Megan Melendez of Stafford, Va. and Tanya Rachan of Lowell, Ind. have been named to the 2012 Gymnastics Academic All Mid-American Conference Team.
“I can’t say how proud I am of the ladies that earned this award,” NIU head coach Sam Morreale said. “It’s great that we have kids who are lighting it up in the gym and in the classroom. I definitely feel Kim, Megan and Tanya stepped it up in both areas this year. This is another indication of a team going in the right direction.”
NIU was shut out on the Academic All-MAC squad a year ago. Honorees are selected in a vote of MAC Faculty Athletics Representatives. All nominees must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 and have participated in at least 50 percent of the season’s contests. Freshmen and first-year transfers are not eligible.
