LINDSBORG — Four members of the Bethany College softball team have earned Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete awards.

Erin Newport, junior infielder; Jessica Armijo, junior pitcher; Michaela Huntington, senior outfielder; and Taryn Hargash, junior outfielder, were honored for their academic prowess.

In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved junior academic status.
