Junior Helena Briggs has been named the National Student-Athlete of the Year by the USCAA. Briggs, who plays both volleyball and basketball at Christendom, was recognized due to her outstanding performance both on the court and off.
Briggs is Christendom's first National Student-Athlete of the Year.
This is Briggs' first Student-Athlete of the Year award, but not her first award from the USCAA. She has been named to the USCAA Academic All-American team since her sophomore year of college. Along with her excellent GPA, she has achieved First Honors for five consecutive semesters, been voted junior class president, serves on the student presidential advisory council, and has helped off-campus on mission trips and more.
Christendom students are often awarded by the USCAA for their academic prowess, with multiple students named Academic All-Americans each year.
