GREENEVILLE, Tenn. - South Dakota School of Mines seniors Jamie Lien and Ayla Brausen have been named as Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes for the 2010-11 season.
Lien is an interdisciplinary Sciences major from Presho, S.D., and Brausen is a Metallurgical Engineering major from Roscoe, S.D.
“It’s not surprising that these two ladies have received this honor,” said Lady Hardrocker head golf coach Eric Glenn. “They work hard both on and off the course and really exemplify what a student-athlete is at South Dakota Mines.”
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.
