CLEVELAND – Jacqlyn Poss of the University of Denver women’s basketball team was one of 20 student-athletes from across the nation to be named to the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (DI-AAA ADA) Scholar-Athlete Team.
Poss, a Business Analytics major with a 3.83 GPA, led the Pioneers throughout the 2016-17 season in scoring with 13.6 points per game to go along with 2.7 boards and 2.0 assists.
To be eligible for this award, each student-athlete must have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 (on a 4.00 scale), as well as have been a starter or important reserve participating in at least 50 percent of their team’s games with legitimate athletics credentials.
"Our association is thrilled with the high quality of this year's group of women's and men's scholar-athlete award winners," stated Tim Hall, chair of the Division I-AAA Scholar-Athlete Team Selection Committee and athletics director at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. "Our basketball programs are the primary focus of I-AAA athletics and recognizing these scholar-athletes, the Scholar-Athletes of the Year and the postgraduate scholarship recipients for their outstanding accomplishments is very gratifying for our organization.
Poss is the only female student-athlete from the Summit League to be selected for the prestigious award this season.
In addition to selecting the all-academic teams, one male and one female student-athlete was selected as the Division I-AAA ADA Scholar-Athletes of the Year. Mehryn Kraker from UW-Green Bay and Nigel Williams-Goss received the honors.
