Three Lady Techsters Earn NTCA All-Academic Honors

July 3, 2018

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – The Louisiana Tech bowling team continued to show its versatility on and off the lanes on Tuesday, as three student athletes in Ashley Channell, Kaitlyn Eder and Sarah McComic were named to the 2017-18 National Tenpin Coaches Association (NTCA) All-Academic Team.

“Winning tournaments and going to a national championship is what is expected of us,” head coach Matt Nantais remarked. “However, to me, making Academic All-American is just as important.  These student athletes are here to receive an education first.  I am very proud of the hard work these student athletes have put in during this past season on the lanes and especially in the classroom.”

To be recognized for all-academic consideration, student-athletes must have a cumulative 3.4 GPA or higher for the academic school year.

Channell (Preprof Speech-Language Pathology) and Eder (Psychology) wrapped up impressive freshman campaigns, while McComic (Animal Science) capped off a stellar senior season. The three helped propel the Tech bowling team to a consistent appearance in the NTCA Top 25 poll throughout last season.
