LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- In an announcement made today from conference headquarters, Colorado College's Megan Koch was named the 2020 SCAC Women's Track & Field Elite 19 award winner.
Koch, a sophomore from Highlands Ranch, Colo., currently holds a 4.00 GPA and is a three-time All-SCAC honoree. At the 2019 SCAC Track & Field Championship, Koch helped lead the Tigers to a third-place finish after finishing second in the 1,500-meters (4:57.30), second in the 800-meters (2:21.82) and running a leg on the 4x400 relay team that finished third (4:07.53) - earning All-SCAC honors in all three events.
Due to the cancelation of the 2020 spring season, the criteria for the SCAC Elite 19 honor was modified. Awarded to the student-athlete who has completed the equivalent of at least 60 credit hours at his or her current institution and has at least a cumulative 3.25 GPA - for this spring only - a All-SCAC honor at any point of the student-athlete's career was enough to satisfy the all-conference requirement. Normally, the student-athlete must have earned All-SCAC honors in his/her sport for that particular season.
The SCAC Elite 19 award was established prior to the 2018-19 academic year and is meant to recognize the best of the best within each conference sponsored-sport as it relates to both academic and athletic achievement.
