Three Lady Warriors Named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes
March 16, 2011
Kansas City, Kan. - Three Lady Warriors have been named 2011Daktronics-NAIA Division II Women's Basketball Scholar Athletes. Megan Patrick, Kelly Curtis, and Julie Penner all earned the honor in 2011. In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.
Patrick earns the honor in her junior season, which was shortened to 10 games due to a season ending injury that occurred just before the winter break. Megan is from Hutchinson, Kansas and averaged 18.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game before injuring her knee.
Curtis is a junior guard from Great Bend, Kansas. As part of the 2010-2011 KCAC Regular Season Co-Champion Sterling College basketball team, Kelly dished out 32 assists while having the fewest number of turnovers among the Lady Warrior guards with 23.
Penner is a junior guard from Whitewater, Kansas and appeared in nine games this season. Though she didn't see a significant amount of floor time, Penner's leadership both during practice and from the bench was played a significant role in Sterling's success.
