Travis Kemp and Ian Morehouse have been named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes.
In order to be nominated, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.
Kemp, a senior from Alberta, Canada, was the Class Valedictorian.
A native of Commerce, Morehouse was also a senior.
“Both Travis and Ian have been a real credit to Northwood,” head coach Ben Belfield said. “They were leaders – in the classroom and on the course. They are both going to be missed.”
The Northwood men’s golf team had a team GPA of 3.49, with eight of its nine golfers with a GPA of 3.45 or better. The team also excelled on the course, and was ranked 12th nationally in the final NAIA 2013 poll.

“Joss has been an outstanding golfer for the last two years, it has been fun to see him progress from the three handicapper he arrived as to a Top Class golfer he now stands,” Belfield said. “Joss has just played in the British Amateur and made Final Qualifying for the British Open. I am very proud of the work he has put in and expect him to only get stronger from this point forward.”
Next year, Northwood golfers will be competing in the Sooner Athletic Conference.
Five SAC schools are ranked in the top 25 teams in the post-season poll – the most of any NAIA conference.
