The 16 NSIC member schools each nominate one male and one female student-athlete for the Britton and Kelly Awards, which this year went to Concordia-St. Paul’s Jena Berkland and Augustana’s Tyler Riemersma. Those 32 nominees are honored as student-athletes of the year at their respective schools.

Nominees must hold a grade point average of 3.20 or better, show evidence of academic excellence beyond the minimum GPA (scholarship prizes and other academic recognition), show evidence of participation in the life of the institution, and participate in at least two-thirds of their primary team’s competitions. The award is voted on by the NSIC Faculty Athletic Representatives.
