It is always great to see our student-athletes recognized for their dedication.”
Preamchuem was named an All-American Scholar for the third year in a row, while Clinning received the same recognition for a second consecutive season.
Preamchuem, Clinning and Lescudier helped the Owls capture their first-ever A-Sun Conference championship and KSU advanced to NCAA Division I postseason play for the
