Post-season honors for several

Several Missouri S&T student-athletes earned honors for their performances both on and off the field during the spring season.


Besides earning a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Division II Track Championships, Terry Robinson, a junior in civil engineering, was named the Midwest Region’s Track Athlete of the Year after earning a similar honor from the GLVC. Robinson won two individual events and anchored both S&T winning relay teams at the conference’s outdoor track meet in May.
Softball player Kristen Drage, a senior in civil engineering, landed on two All-America teams in her sport, earning second-team honors on the Louisville Slugger/NFCA squad and third-team accolades on the Daktronics Inc. team. Drage led the Lady Miners with a .427 batting average, 10 home runs and 45 runs batted in.
Electrical engineering senior Brandon Cogan and mechanical engineering junior Allen Ernst were named this spring to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America team in their respective sports. Cogan, a member of the baseball team, finished the season as the Miners’ third-leading hitter with a .348 batting average. Ernst earned second-team All-GLVC honors and was a provisional qualifier for the NCAA Division II Championships in track and field for S&T after finishing third in the steeplechase at the GLVC Outdoor Championships. Missouri S&T student-athletes have earned 33 Academic All-America awards since 2000, the fourth-highest total among NCAA Division II institutions.
