The Journal’s 2011-2012 Webster Athletic Awards
Numerous Webster University athletes, teams and coaches stood out during the 2011-2012 sports seasons. So far, 38 Webster athletes were named All-Conference in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, and 31 athletes were named SLIAC All-Academic.
Six teams have won their conference regular-season championships. Three teams have won SLIAC tournament titles and earned NCAA Division III tournament bids as a result. Four coaches were named the SLIAC Coach of the Year for their respective sports. And with postseason awards yet to be announced for several SLIAC spring sports, plenty more accolades are on the way.
It wasn’t easy, but Journal sports editor Josh Sellmeyer and staff writer Andy Arb compiled a list of the best of the best in Webster sports for the 2011-2012 academic year. The rules were simple: pick the winners and runners-up for 16 categories. Duplicate winners were not allowed.
