The Valpo bowling program was well represented Wednesday as the Southland Bowling League released its 2019-20 Academic Honor Roll, as the Brown and Gold placed a league-best nine bowlers on the list. This marks the second straight season that Valpo has paced the SBL in Academic Honor Roll honorees.
Five of Valpo’s recipients earned the honor for a second straight season: junior Peyton Bertermann (Grayslake, Ill./North), junior Hannah Forton (Macomb, Mich./Dakota), senior Becky Lohse (Chesterton, Ind./Chesterton), junior Sam Perez (Aurora, Ill./Oswego East) and junior Mirica Yancey (Aurora, Ill./Waubonsie Valley).
A quartet of first-time honorees joined the aforementioned five as well: freshman Noelle Doody (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrew), sophomore Allura Magsino (Hoffman Estates, Ill./Hoffman Estates), senior Morgan Peacha (Henderson, Nev./Foothill) and junior Jess Soskich (Arlington Heights, Ill./Buffalo Grove).
Honorees must have a minimum 3.00 cumulative grade point average and must have completed one full year at the institution. In all, 46 SBL student-athletes earned a spot on the SBL Academic Honor Roll this year.
