Natalie Huggins Named G-MAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year

May 15, 2014

Natalie Huggins has been named G-MAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

The Great Midwest Athletic Conference athletic calendar year has come to a close with the completion of the 2014 Baseball Championships this past weekend at Prasco Park in Cincinnati, Ohio. With the recent announcement of Cedarville University securing the Presidents’ Cup, it is time for the G-MAC to announce its end of the year honors, starting with the 2013-14 Male and Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Huggins was a four-year starter for the Arrow’s softball team, shared team MVP honors as a sophomore and again as a junior (note: this seasons team awards have not been announced).

Her coach reports Huggins goes out of her way to take care of the team and encourages them to make good decisions; often leading the team study tables, and participating in team sponsored community events. She has been awarded the NFCA scholar-athlete award.

Outside of athletics Huggins is a resident assistant, acts in school plays, and works in admissions. Her 3.69 GPA does not begin to describe who she is as a student. Huggins is double majoring in Adolescent to Young Adult (AYA) Licensure in Language Arts and AYA Licensure in Mathematics.

Each of these degrees requires the student to also major in the corresponding content area; for Huggins this is Mathematics and English. Therefore Huggins will be graduating with four undergraduate degrees. She has chosen this curriculum to make her a versatile teacher who can also coach.

The awards will be presented on Thursday evening in Nashville, Tennessee during the conferences Spring Meetings and Awards Reception. Following the reception, we will be posting videos featuring comments from all four of our major award winners.
