Love, Allison, and Levi Garner Daktronics Scholar-Athlete Honors
DAYTON, Tenn. – The league announced on Monday the list of 312 NAIA Div. II women’s basketball players who were named 2019 Daktronics NAIA Scholar-Athletes, and Bryan College’s trio of Keniesha Love, To’Nesha Allison, and Amber Levi were the Lions’ representatives as a result of their dedication and hard work in the classroom.
In order to be nominated by an institution, 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 while having already completed two full academic years.
Nine schools from the Appalachian Athletic Conference were represented with Milligan College (Tenn.) leading the way with eight honorees, followed by Bluefield College (Va.) with five, and both Bryan and Brenau University (Ga.) matching each other with three apiece. Tennessee Wesleyan University and Reinhardt University (Ga.) tied with two, respectively, while all three of St. Andrews University (N.C.), Montreat College (N.C.), and Allen University (S.C.) each had one student-athlete recognized.
This marked the second year that Allison and Levi received the title of scholar-athlete while it was Love’s first year.
