Four Mustang women’s basketball players were named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes this month.
Sabrina Thompson, Anika Neuman, Jamilee Iddings and Kimmie Wong were among the 148 NAIA Division 1 players to earn the annual honor.
The award is given to juniors (academically) who maintain a grade point average of at least a 3.5.
For seniors Wong and Iddings, this marked their second time as NAIA Scholar-Athletes. Each of TMU’s four NAIA picks was also named a Golden State Athletic Conference Scholar-Athlete.
“It’s incredibly satisfying to see my team pursue excellence in the classroom the same way they do on the court,” said TMU coach Dan Waldeck. “Our scholar-athletes have all pursued challenging majors and they continue to be outstanding. Jamilee and Kimmie have been consistent for all four years. Sabrina and Anika are so devoted to academic excellence. It’s contagious on our team and it begins with these ladies.”
On the court, the Mustangs reached the NAIA Division 1 quarterfinal for the second time in program history this season. They finished 28-7 and won the first Golden State Athletic Conference regular season title in program history.
