The Valpo bowling program was well represented Thursday as the Southland Bowling League released its 2021-22 Academic Honor Roll, as eight Beacons earned the academic accolade.
Graduated senior Allura Magsino (Hoffman Estates, Ill./Hoffman Estates) and junior Noelle Doody (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrew) both received the honor for a third consecutive year. A trio of student-athletes — Addy Bates (Cedar Park, Texas/Cedar Park), Ruth Magaña (Federal Way, Wash./Decatur) and Isabella Palamaro (Thiells, N.Y./North Rockland) — were recognized for the second straight season, while freshmen Kaitlyn Cavender (New Baltimore, Mich./Anchor Bay), Alli Eible (Burton, Mich./Kearsley) and Lilu Smith (Gahanna, Ohio/Lincoln) were all named to the honor roll as well.
All members of the Southland Bowling League’s Academic Honor Roll team must have earned at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and demonstrated athletics achievement for at least one year at the nominating institution. In all, 67 student-athletes were recognized from the SBL’s eight programs.
