Blazers Honour 2012 Athletic Achievements

Members of the CMU varsity soccer, basketball and volleyball teams gathered earlier this week to recognize the outstanding achievements of the  2011-12 MCAC seasons.

One of CMU proudest accomplishments this year was the success of their varsity athletes in the classroom. The MCAC recognizes student-athletes who achieve a grade-point average of 3.0 (80%) or higher with academic awards for scholar-athletes. This year 47 members of CMU varsity teams received recognition for their classroom success (69% of all team members). The above photos shows the nine student-athletes who were recognized for academic achievements of 4.0 or higher (back row from left: Jacob Miller, Christina Janzen, Vanessa Kornelson, Simon Dueck, Lindsay Braul, Rodger Toews, Josh Ewert, front row: Nina Schroeder, Laura Tait).

Evelyn Kampen took home her second-consecutive Female Athlete of the Year honours. The fifth-year women’s volleyball star completed her final year at CMU in style, winning her third-consecutive conference MVP honours last month.

Other major award winners were Jacob Miller of the men’s basketball team who was selected Male Athlete of the Year. The 5’10 second-year guard was selected to the MCAC All-Conference Team for the first-time earlier this month and helped lead the Blazers to a first-place finish in the regular season.

The Trailblazer Award, given to a student-athlete who showed excellence in team leadership and community service was awarded to Todd Reimer of the men’s volleyball team. The 5’10 outside hitter from Rosenort has captained the Blazers and will be graduating from CMU this spring.
