Brooks Hatch Blog: Alums, Intern Earn Northwest Conference Academic Honors

Happy Tuesday, everyone, from the world-wide headquarters (WWHQ) of the Corvallis Knights, your 2016-2017 West Coast League champions!

I think we overlooked this when it was released late last year, but it’s never to late too recognize the accomplishments of our alums.

Three former/current Knights players and an intern were named 2016-17 Northwest Conference Scholar-Athletes. The award recognizes outstanding performance in the classroom and on the field of play.

So honored were catcher Andrew Reichenbach (2016) of George Fox; pitcher Cason Cunningham (2017-18) of Linfield; infielder Brady Rediger (2017) of Linfield, and 2017 Knights media intern Holly Bartholomew, a soccer player at Pacific University.

To be eligible, a student-athlete must achieve a cumulative grade-point average of 3.50 or higher at the end of the academic year, and must have participated throughout the entire varsity season.

Congrats to all for their outstanding work!
