Six earn presigious President's Council Academic Award
Ten Saluki women earned Scholar-Athlete distinction, the most for a single team male or female in 2014.
Ashley Gaston (discus) and Luke James (triple jump) won individual MVC titles on Sunday, and Josh Freeman (MVC Most Outstanding Field Athlete) and Sadie Darnell (Elite 18) were recognized as MVC award recipients.
After seven total events across both genders, the Saluki women currently rank second and the men sixth in the team scores.
SIU swept both the men's and women's 800 meter run for the second-straight week.
