Ashland science athletes in the news

Tom Scott
A number of Ashland science majors are making an impact in their varsity sports this year.  Tom Scott (Biology '11) was just named the Midwest Region men's track athlete of the year by the US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association and was named the male track athlete of the year at the GLIAC championships where he won the 800 meters with a time that ranks fifth in NCAA Division II.  Tom will be traveling to Albuquerque, NM to compete in the national championships this weekend.

Two other Ashland science students, Daiva Gerbec (Biochemistry '13) and Beth Mantkowski (Biology '13), are members of the Ashland University women's basketball team that made it to the final game of the GLIAC championship this past week.  Daiva was selected as a first team all conference pick prior to the conference final four, and was named to the South Division All-Defensive Team.  The AU women defeated Findlay to make it to the finals.  Go Eagles.
