(Neb.)-Troester wins RMAC Summit Award
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference is recognizing Kelly Troester of Chadron State College and Kristen McGlynn-Arendt of Adams State University as the inaugural Summit Award winners for outdoor track and field.
Troester and McGlynn-Arendt are both previous Summit Award winners for the 2012-13 indoor track and field season.
The pair will be recognized following the RMAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships, during the awards ceremony on Tuesday in Golden, Colo., on the campus of Colorado School of Mines.
The RMAC Summit Award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals sites for each of the RMAC’s championships.
All GPAs are based on a straight grading scale to ensure consistency among institutions. Any tie is broken by the number of credits completed.
Eligible student-athletes are sophomores or above who have participated in their sport for at least two years with their school. They must be an active member of the team, traveling and competing at the championship.
Troester is a senior with a 3.98 grade-point average and majoring in Rangeland Management. He graduated from Crawford High School in Marsland, Neb. Last year, Troester earned All-American honorable mention. He also made school history this past cross country season when he was named RMAC All-Academic Second Team.
