Heidelberg honors scholar-athletes

TIFFIN, Ohio — A total of 160 Heidelberg University student-athletes were honored earlier this month not for their play on the field but for their achievements in the classroom. The following local residents are among those receiving the Landess Scholar-Athlete Award for the fall semester:

Brandon Magee of Covington, a freshman majoring in Criminology (football)

Vivian Brauer of Pleasant Hill, a sophomore majoring in Education (cheerleading)

Alyssa Crusey of Tipp City, a freshman majoring in Health Science (volleyball)

Tyler Hunter of Tipp City, a junior majoring in Health Science (football)

The Landess Scholar-Athlete Award, made possible through a gift from Heidelberg Board of Trustees member Bill Landess, class of 1995, recognizes students-athletes who earn above a 3.0 GPA during the semester of competition. The team trophy for the fall semester went to the women’s cross country team, which recorded a combined 3.45 GPA last fall.
