SIOUX CITY ó Will Pottebaum has received academic honors. The Le Mars native, a member of the Morningside University menís basketball team, was named to a pair of lists.

College Sports Communicators announced its Academic All-District Teams for 2022, including four Morningside menís basketball players. All-district honorees will move ahead for consideration for the CSC Academic All-America Teams. Pottebaum was included on that list.

The CSC Academic All-American program recognizes the nationís top student-athletes for a combination of success on the field and in the classroom, requiring that nominees maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better and participate in at least 50 percent of games played in a season.

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics announced its Daktronics Scholar-Athletes for menís basketball, with the honorees being announced ahead of the national tournament in Kansas City, Missouri.

Morningside had seven athletes receive the scholar-athlete distinction this year, including Pottebaum.

In order to qualify for the NAIA scholar athlete program, a student-athlete must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.5, appear on a sportís eligibility certificate, and have attended one full year at the current institution.
