PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The BIG EAST Conference announced the winners of the 2012-13 Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Awards today (June 20, 2013) and Providence College junior Laura Nagel (Napier, New Zealand) was named the women’s cross country winner.
The BIG EAST Faculty Athletics Representative Council gives the awards to one student-athlete in each BIG EAST-sponsored sport based on their athletic accolades or performances, academic credentials and volunteer service to the community. Those student-athletes who have attained junior academic standing and a cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 or higher are eligible.
Nagel earned All-America honors at the 2012 NCAA Cross Country Championship, finishing 35th overall and helping the team to a national runner-up showing. She also placed fourth at the NCAA Northeast Regional Championship.
Along with her athletic achievements, Nagel is a Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) member and completed numerous volunteers services throughout the 2012-13 year. She assisted at the St. Vincent De Paul ‘Friends of the Poor Walk/Run Road Race,’ raised money for the American Cancer Society by participating at the 2013 Relay for Life and mentored the La Salle Acadeny girls cross country team to help empower them to use running for something other than its surface level.
Among the other schools nominated, Notre Dame had a league-high five individuals honored by the conference, while Louisville had four and Marquette, Seton Hall and Villanova had three each.
