NORFOLK, Va. – Four Howard University student-athletes are named to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) 2020 Women’s Bowling All-Academic Team.
The league honored 58 student-athletes from its 11 bowling institutions who have achieved academic success in the spring 2019 and fall 2019 semesters.
Sophomores Janae Bradford, Jahnia Phillips, Jayla Webster and junior captain Carolyn Williams were named to the list.
“I am so proud of these ladies,” said Howard women’s bowling head coach Ron Davis. “Our goals were to not only thrive in competition but inside the classroom as well. This is a win for us.”
MEAC sophomore, junior and senior student-athletes with a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average (GPA), as well as transfer student-athletes who have been in residence at the institution for at least one year, are eligible for All-Academic accolades.
“I want to congratulate our bowling student-athletes, who maintained a 3.0 or better grade point average during the spring 2019 and fall 2019 semesters,” MEAC Commissioner Dennis E. Thomas said. “The ultimate goal is to develop and graduate our student-athletes to be productive citizens in our society.”
The Bison finished its 2019-20 campaign with 50 victories, including 10 versus nationally-ranked opponents.
