Crosson, Voth named KCAC athletes of the year

Two Marion County athletes have been awarded Kansas Collegiate Athlete Conference Champion of Character Student Athlete of the Year for 2009-10.

Tabor College volleyball player Jordan Crosson was named female student athlete of the year and Bethel College student and former Goessel High School graduate Cameron Voth was named male student athlete of the year.

Crosson, a junior at Tabor during the 2009-10 school year, is the first recipient of this new award established by the conference.

She received the award at the fourth annual KCAC Sport Management Conference Tuesday in Salina.

“Jordan was selected from an outstanding pool of candidates,” KCAC Commissioner Scott Crawford said. “Her accomplishments have set her apart and established the standard for years to come for all student-athletes competing in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference.”

A native of Minneapolis, Crosson is majoring in secondary education and preparing to be a history teacher. She has made the Bluejay honor roll every semester during her college career and was named KCAC Academic All-Conference in 2008 and 2009. She also was a NAIA All-America Scholar Athlete in 2009.

Voth will be a junior with a cumulative grade point average of 3.697. He is a member of the Thresher golf team and has been named to the dean’s list or honor roll all four semesters of his college career.

He also participated for a third summer this year in the Kids Across America, a Christian sports camp where he and other Bethel golfers taught golf skills and served as role models for inner-city youth.

“I am pleased to recognize Cameron for his efforts on the golf course and his commitment to service and academics,” Crawford said. “This award was created specifically to recognize this type of all-around effort.”

The award was established to recognize significant contributions from student athletes who excel in the classroom, in sports, and in the community.
