Four Named Big Ten Distinguished Scholars



COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State was once again among the top softball programs in the Big Ten with four players earning Distinguished Scholar accolades from the conference. Kallie Boren (Technical Education and Training), Kat Duvall (Integrated Language Arts & English Education), Andi Farrah (Health Sciences) and Morgan Ray (Health Sciences) were recognized for their outstanding work in the classroom.

In order to be eligible, a student-athlete must be in at least their second year on campus and earn a 3.7 or better grade-point average during the 2018-19 academic year.

Duvall and Ray have been named Distinguished Scholars multiple times during their Buckeye careers while it’s the first honor for Boren and Farrah. Duvall was also one of 16 Ohio State student-athletes to achieve a perfect 4.0 GPA.

As a team, the Buckeyes finished the spring semester with a 3.41 GPA. Thirteen student-athletes had a term GPA of 3.5 or better while five earned 4.0s – including Duvall, Ray and Farrah. The members of the 2019 roster completed the 2018-19 academic year with a 3.35 cumulative GPA. Thirteen Buckeyes also earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition in May.
