The NAIA announced that Bethany College catcher Brittany Lewis is one of the 308 softball student-athletes to be named 2012 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes.
To be nominated by an institution's head coach, student-athletes must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.
Lewis is a junior catcher from Glendale, Ariz. Earlier this season Lewis earned first-team All-Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference honors. The Swedes ended their regular season at 44-7. They were conference champions and tournament champions, earning them a trip to the NAIA National Tournament. Lewis has a 3.62 grade point average.
Head Softball Coach Janice Esses says, "Brittany Lewis exemplifies the true meaning of a student-athlete. Her classwork is her top priority. However, when she is on the softball field all of her focus is on the game. It takes a lot of discipline and hard work to become a scholar-athlete. This honor recognizes Brittany for her determination and commitment in the classroom and on the field. As a coach I appreciate Brittany's commitment to her classwork and our softball program."
Lewis is the daughter of Randal and Helyn Lewis and is majoring in elementary education.
