Area athletes honored by PSAC
SHIPPENSBURG - Four area athletes from Shippensburg University are among a record 2,200 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference scholar-athletes named for the 2012-2103 school year.
Women's basketball teammates Jen Kalinowski, Kasey Long and Caitlin Deeter, and wrestler Tyler Erdman were selectees. Kalinowski is a graduate of Lourdes Regional, Deeter from North Schuylkill, and Long and Erdman are Line Mountain graduates.
In order to earn scholar-athlete status, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 or better. The 2,200 student-athletes represent 35 percent of the reported 6,307 student-athletes in the PSAC and broke the record of 2,187 set last school year.
