BURNSVILLE -- A number of Bemidji State student-athletes roped in the NSIC Myles Brand All-Academic with Distinction Award on Thursday, as 13 Beavers were named to the prestigious list.

The honor, named after the late NCAA President Dr. Myles Brand, is given to senior NSIC student-athletes who have a GPA of at least 3.75, are exhausting their eligibility and are on track to graduate.

A total of 238 student-athletes from the NSIC will receive the award this year, 11 more than last year’s record-setting number.

BSU’s 13 selections is the university’s most since the award was introduced in 2010, better than the previous record of nine from 2016.

Bemidji State’s honorees are Brooklyn Bachmann (women’s basketball; Minooka, Ill.); Cody Landwehr (men’s basketball; St. Cloud); Maddie Mackinac (volleyball; Rosemount); Isabelle Morin (women’s soccer; Bemidji); Jocelyn Nyblom (women’s golf; Apple Valley); Ryne Prigge (women’s track and field and cross country; Ely); Rafaela Rafajlovska (women’s track and field; Gostivar, Macedonia); Coley Rezabek (women’s basketball and track and field; Sunrise Beach, Mo.); Layna Rutkowski (women’s tennis; Winona); Alison Schak (softball; Faribault); Derek Thompson (men’s basketball; Cold Spring); Molly Wenner (women’s basketball; Cottage Grove); and Claire Wolhowe (women’s basketball; Staples).
