CLEVELAND – Senior Jenner Sio and junior Jenelle McCalla were both named to the Mid-American Conference’s Academic All-Conference team, the league office announced Tuesday.
In addition, Erica Miller and Courtney Oldenburg earned honorable mention recognition by the MAC.
“Our staff and team are extremely proud of Jenelle and Jenner’s Academic All-MAC honor,” said NIU Driector of Track & Field and Cross Country Connie Teaberry. “They both work hard to achieve their goals academically and athletically, so it comes as no surprise that these ladies were chosen. Both are competitive in their event areas, and both have maintained 4.0 GPAs. Competing at this level, it takes organization and determination to balance academics and athletics and Jenner and Jenelle would not settle for giving less than 100 percent in both.”
