Mustang Sports Report: Dec. 10, 2012

HorseHeadMARYGROVE ATHLETICS CONTINUES ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
NAIA/USCAA/WHAC RELEASE FALL SPORTS ALL-ACADEMIC HONORS

Marygrove College Athletics has been a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) for nearly the entire history of the athletic program. In 2007, the Mustangs joined a new association, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), to strengthen their athletic brand while offering student-athletes greater exposure. This season, our athletic teams joined the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) within the NAIA to once again increase the student-athlete experience.

Today, the Mustangs are affiliated with all three associations. The affiliations give our student-athletes an opportunity to play for various championships, as well as garner more awards for their academic achievements. With the 2012 fall sports season complete, all three associations released their 2012 All-Academic Teams. Without surprise, Marygrove was well-represented in all three associations.
