ST. PAUL, Minn. --- When it comes to college sports, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of competition and winning championships, especially during the “madness” that is the month of March. But once the confetti has fallen and the gym lights are shut off, the remarkable athletes that captivate spectators and fans go back to their “jobs” as students.
“Recognizing our athletes for their intellectual achievement reinforces our belief that scholarship is truly important,” Wahl said. “At Carleton and other MIAC schools, we try to focus on the whole person, and we think this holistic approach helps MIAC athletes achieve their best no matter what the forum. For our students to receive the NCAA scholarship helps confirm this approach is working.”
