Over the past few years, the MSU football team has seemingly developed a “chip on our shoulder” mantra.
62 MSU student-athletes were named Academic All-Big Ten honorees for the 2017 winter sports season, the Big Ten Conference announced Wednesday. To be eligible for this honor, each student-athlete must earn a varsity letter, be in at least their second academic year at a Big Ten university and obtain a GPA of 3.0 or higher. MSU swimming and diving sophomores Gabe Whitaker, Courtney Aycock and Heidi Surdyk were three of 12 conference student-athletes who earned a perfect 4.0 GPA. Below is the full list of MSU's honorees: Men's Basketball Kyle Ahrens, So.
As MSU football held its Pro Day on Wednesday, limited media availability led to minuscule information being surfaced from the event as the drills portion was closed to the media, leaving fans and reporters gathering little knowledge and having to refer to tweets and interviews with selected players.
After MSU Athletic Director Mark Hollis announced on Tuesday Tom Anastos, who led the Spartans to a mere seven wins in the 2016-17 season, was stepping down from the helm of the MSU hockey program, the search to find a replacement instantly commenced.
As the season nears a close for the MSU gymnastics team, four Spartans — seniors Nicola Deans, Elena Lagoski and Kira Frederick and junior Hailee Westney — qualified for the NCAA Regionals and will head to Champaign, Ill.
