Four TCU student-athletes were named recipients of the Big 12's Dr. Gerald Lage Academic Achievement Award last week, including Kari Hancock from the Horned Frog equestrian team. The award is in its seventh year and is the Big 12 Conference's highest academic honor.
Hancock, a senior from Anchorage, Alaska, has garnered four MOP honors throughout the 2016-17 equestrian season. Hancock also leads the team in total wins with 10. She is a biochemistry major.
In order to be eligible for the accolade, student-athletes must have lettered at least once in their career while maintaining residence at their institution for at least one academic year. The honoree, which can only be recognized once, should have 100 hours of earned credit with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.80 at the time of the nomination.
The Dr. Gerald Lage Academic Achievement Award recipients will receive public recognition at the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship, scheduled for March 8-11 at Sprint Center in Kansas City.
