Nolen, Nonnemacher named Cougars Athletes of the Year
Football kicker Spencer Nolen and softball pitcher Megan Nonnemacher were named St. Xavier University’s top male and female athletes, respectively, for the 2013-14 school year at last week’s awards banquet.
Their designations highlighted the event, which also feted a total of 94 student-athletes for their classroom achievements. Both Nolen, a graduate student who is pursuing a masters degree in business administration, and Nonnemacher, an elementary education major, were among those individuals awarded gold medallions for maintaining a grade-point average between 3.75 and 4.0 on a 4.0 scale through Dec. 31, 2013.
On the field of play, Nolen led the Cougars in scoring last fall with 72 points, which came on 33 conversions and 13 field goals. He was also the team’s primary punter. Nolen was a member of the Mid-States Football Association All-Midwest League squad and a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete.
Nonnemacher has won 22 games for SXU’s No. 8-ranked softball program this spring after being chosen as a first-team honoree for the Capital One Academic All-America College Division team and a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete.
