Hulbert hoops set to open season

Local briefs

The Hulbert basketball teams will host their only home games before Christmas tonight at Rider Fieldhouse. Hulbert is set to take on Okay with the girls starting at 6:30 p.m. and the boys at 8.

It’ll be the season debut for both Hulbert teams, while Okay comes in having played Mounds earlier this week. The Okay girls are 0-1 and the boys are 1-0.

Keys-Hilldale games postponed

Keys’ basketball games at Hilldale tonight have been postponed to later in the season. The games are being pushed back because Hilldale’s football team is still playing in the Class 3A playoffs.

The Hornets are slated to take on Metro Christian tonight in Tulsa.

No makeup date has been set for the hoops rematch.

NSU men's soccer earns NSCAA academic accolade

The Northeastern State men’s soccer program was a recipient of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Team Academic Award, the organization announced.

The NSCAA annually recognizes college and high school soccer programs that have excelled in the classroom, in addition to their work on the pitch.

A total of 862 college soccer teams (269 men, 593 women) posted a team grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, thereby earning the accolade for the 2012-13 academic year.

The RiverHawks (10-3-4), led by fourth-year coach Rob Czlonka, finished runner up in the MIAA for the second-straight year and just missed an opportunity to compete in the NCAA Championship for the second season in a row.

18 NSU football players earn MIAA academic accolades

The 2013 MIAA Academic Honor Roll recipients for football were announced Thursday by the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association.

Northeastern State placed 18 members of the squad on the honor roll. Those included 10 offensive players, six defensive players and two specialists.

Sophomore offensive lineman Ross Dvorak and redshirt freshman center Hudson Baab were the two representatives from NSU named MIAA Scholar-Athletes.

Overall, there were 301 MIAA Students-Athletes in football named to the MIAA Academic Honor Roll.

To achieve honor roll status, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 and have at least two terms of attendance at the certifying member institution, excluding summer terms.

Of those 301 student-athletes, 25 earned the MIAA Scholar Athlete Award, which is given to those who have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.50, have at least two terms of attendance at the certifying member institution, excluding summer terms, and, if competing in a championship sport of the MIAA, earn All-MIAA honors.
