K-State Places Entire Team on Honor Roll

MANHATTAN, Kan. The No. 18 Kansas State women’s basketball team has succeeded on the court and in the classroom this season, as all 11 members of the squad were named to the Fall 2007 Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll. They are the only women’s basketball team in the Big 12 to place its entire squad on the honor roll.


The Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll is an inclusive honor for all varsity sports sponsored by the membership of the league. The Honor Roll is recorded and released each semester to recognize student-athletes who have excelled in the classroom with a 3.0 or better grade-point average.


K-State women’s basketball student-athletes who reached the honor roll with a 4.0 GPA for the fall semester were: sophomore Kari Kincaid, junior Shalee Lehning, senior Carolyn McCullough and junior Danielle Zanotti. A season ago, Lehning, McCullough and Zanotti were each selected to the 2006-07 Academic All-Big 12 first team for their work in the classroom.


In addition to earning a 4.0 GPA in the first semester, McCullough received the Outstanding Senior Award for Communication Sciences and Disorders for Fall 2007. The native of Stilwell, Kan., was a 2006-07 Academic All-Big 12 first team selection and was one of just four players in the conference to be selected with a perfect 4.0 GPA.


The Wildcats host Kansas on Saturday as part of the national Think Pink’ awareness day. The first 6,000 fans will receive a pink t-shirt. It is also a “Wildcat Weekend” as the men host Oklahoma State at 5 p.m. Entrance to the women’s game is just $3 if you present a men’s ticket.
