Biola leads conference in scholar-athlete awards

Nov. 14, 2014 By Neil Morgan


Over the past week, the Golden State Athletic Conference released its 2014 Cross Country and men and women’s soccer Scholar-Athletes.

To be considered a GSAC Scholar-Athlete, the student-athlete must be at least a junior in academic years and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.50 on a 4.0 scale.

The Eagles wrapped up six cross country scholar-athletes and added a combined five soccer scholar-athletes. The 11 total honorees gives Biola the most scholar-athletes in the conference to this point in the school year.

Westmont, The Master’s College and GSAC-newcomer William Jessup sit directly behind Biola with 10 scholar-athletes a piece. Vanguard also has nine student-athletes recognized on the four lists.

All of Biola Cross Country’s scholar-athletes come on the women’s side, with five juniors and a senior honored. Carrie Soholt was the lone senior to earn the recognition, and it is her second time as a cross country scholar-athlete. Brooke Arvdson, Kathleen Bell, Megan Callender, Anika Gasner and Ilima Kung were the juniors honored.

The soccer teams had two men and three women receive the recognition. Carlos Cristhian Aparicio and Joshua Crichton, both juniors, earned it on the men’s side, and Anna Barrett, Shea Davis and Miranda Starbeck were recognized from the women’s team. It is Barrett, Davis and Starbeck’s second time receiving the honor.

The next set of GSAC Scholar-Athletes to be released will be volleyball.
