(2019-20 Daktronics-NAIA Women's Cross Country Scholar-Athletes) The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has released its 2019-20 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes and the Hope International Women's Cross Country team had one student-athlete selected to the list.
Women's Cross Country student-athletes earning Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete honors included:
Tabitha Abbey (SR/Fullerton, CA)
In 2019-20, the NAIA changed the requirements for the Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete awards. Instead of being based on in-year criteria, student-athletes were eligible based on the most recently completed academic year, taking that into account with the residency requirement and academic status requirement.
Student-athletes that are eligible to become Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes must have at least a 3.5 grade point average as defined by the institution, be on the institution's eligibility certificate for that sport, have junior academic status after the completion of the most recent semester (Spring 2020), and have attended the current institution for at least one year as a transfer or two years as a non-transfer.
