The UW-Madison Division of Recreational Sports is proud to announce that four of our club rugby student-athletes have been named to the USA Rugby Academic Honor Roll for the 2011-2012 academic year. Men’s Club Rugby athletes Andrew Hanske, Jordan Heginbottom, and Tim Slater were honored as well as Grace Hovde from the Women’s Club Rugby team.
USA Rugby honors student-athletes with at least junior standing that have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 or higher while competing as an “A” side player. They commend student athletes for their success on and off the field, as well as the dedication to being role models on their college campuses.
Student-athletes within club sports face numerous challenges to continuously compete in the sport they love, while keeping up with academic commitments. With 33,000 men and women competing within the collegiate rugby clubs across the United States, it’s a tremendous honor for these four individuals to be named to this honor roll.
Congratulations Andrew, Jordan, Tim, and Grace for your outstanding contribution to the Club Sports Program and the Division of Recreational Sports.
