COLUMBUS, Ohio –Forty-nine members of the Ohio State rowing program, including varsity and novice student-athletes, were named Ohio State Scholar-Athletes on Wednesday night at the annual Scholar-Athlete Dinner. The group was recognized among 674 total Ohio State student-athletes who earned the honor.
Senior Sierra Cydrus (health promotion, nutrition, & exercise science) has earned the distinction all four years of her academic career at Ohio State. Twenty-five other rowers are first-time recipients of the Scholar-Athlete distinction.
Senior Madison Sheahan was one of two female student-athletes who received the M/I Homes Foundation Award. Awarded annually since 1976, the M/I Homes Foundation Award was one of the first designed specifically to recognize and promote women’s achievements in intercollegiate athletics at Ohio State. It provides an outstanding female scholar-athlete $5,000 for postgraduate studies at Ohio State. The award is based on demonstrated athletic and academic success along with community contributions through involvement in civic or university organizations.
To receive the distinction, a student-athlete must carry a 3.0 or better grade-point average.
