KSU women puts six on Academic All-Big 12

By The Mercury

K-State women’s basketball placed six student-athletes on the Academic All-Big 12 team in an announcement by the Big 12 on Thursday.

Four of K-State’s honorees received a first-team citation, while two garnered second-team honors.

Since the beginning of the Big 12 in 1996-97, K-State has earned a league-best 105 Academic All-Big 12 honors, including 85 first-team citations, which also paces the Big 12.

K-State and Texas each placed six student-athletes on the Academic All-Big 12 Team to lead the league.

The six honorees were the most for K-State since the 2011 season when the Wildcats also earned six.

Wildcats who earned Academic All-Big 12 First-Team honors include seniors Chantay Caron (elementary education) and Katya Leick (journalism and mass communications), sophomore Bri Craig (family studies and human services) and redshirt-freshman Kelly Thomson (nutritional services/pre-med).

Caron and Thomson were two of just three recipients in the league to be nominated with a 4.0 grade-point average.
