LINDSBORG, Kan. - Bethany College seniors Kimi Lindshield and Ciera Wong have been named to the NAIA Div. II Women's Basketball Scholar-Athletes list. The student-athletes who show exceptional excellence in the classroom earn these honors.
"I'm very excited for these two student-athletes. This is a well-deserved honor and it is what our program is striving to be about," Swedes head coach Keith Ferguson said.
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status. In addition, the student-athlete must have attended Bethany for two full years as a non-transfer and one full year as a transfer student.
Lindshield ended her senior campaign as the team's leading rebounder. She averaged 10.5 points and 7.36 rebounds per game for the Swedes. Lindshield scored a season high of 19 points against Oklahoma Wesleyan on February 2 and she grabbed a season high 13 rebound against Bethel two days later. She also earned all-conference third-team honors this season.
Wong started in almost every game for Bethany this year controlling the Swede's offense from the point. She average one assist and 2.46 points per game this season. Wong put up a season high of eight points again Saint Mary and York; she had three assists against Central Christian and Tabor, and grabbed a season high of two steals, also against York.
"It is always great to see our student-athletes receive recognition for their achievements in the classroom. They work just as hard off the court as they do on the court and we are happy that this award highlights those efforts," Swedes Dean of Athletics and Student Development Dane Pavlovich said.
