KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Following the NAIA Outdoor Championships, the national office announced the 2017 Daktronics-NAIA track and field scholar-athletes. Six different Viterbo University track and field student-athletes made the list of over 700. 

In order to be nominated for scholar-athlete recognition, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved junior academic status.

On the men's side, Michael Kosmann, Josh Housel, and Cameron Henrickson all made the list. Kosmann had a solid senior year, competing in the 200-meter, 400-meter, 600-meter, and 400 hurdles for the V-Hawks while maintaining a 3.75 GPA in his mathematics major. Housel ventured into the decathlon this season and placed second at the NSAA Outdoor Championships. Henrickson shined in the triple jump for Viterbo, recording a career-best 12.25-meter mark.

A trio of V-Hawks women also were named NAIA Scholar-Athletes. Rachel Turi finished up her career at Viterbo with a 3.75 GPA in dietetics while Heidi Flanders also completed her dietetics major. Shania Pokorny competed in a handful of events this season, owning the V-Hawks top marks in the long jump, triple jump, and javelin throw while maintaining a 3.74 GPA as a nursing major.

Earlier in May, the 2017 Daktronics-NAIA golf scholar-athletes were also announced and six V-Hawks made the list. Taylor Hanson and Cole Hewitt represented the men while Josephine Costley, Danielle Ducklow, Ashley Hansen, and Maya Marshall were all named women's golf NAIA Scholar-Athletes.
