Hannaway named academic all-RMAC player of the year

By Doug Fitzgerald published January 24, 2007

The first of what promises to be many honors for Patrick Hannaway rolled in Wednesday as the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs senior was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference academic player of the year.

Hannaway, who came into this season with a 3.92 GPA in Biology, plans to become an Orthodontist.

But before the senior from Colorado Springs starts straightening teeth, there's still plenty of basketball to be played and Hannaway's very good at that. He leads the nation with a 69.3 field goal percentage and is atop the RMAC in scoring at 24.1 points per game.

Joining Hannaway on the academic all-RMAC first team were Dusty Jura of Nebraska-Kearney, Tim Bieri of Fort Lewis, plus Metro State standouts Michael Bahl and Jesse Wagstaff. The second team included Ian Elseth (Colorado Mines), Kody Christiensen (Chadron State), Davey Iverson (Colorado Mines), Wes Jensen (Adams State) and Chad Burger (Nebraska-Kearney).

To qualify for Academic All-RMAC, student-athletes must have a GPA of 3.20 or better, be a starter or key reserve, and completed two consecutive semesters or three quarters at their current institution. Their GPA is what they had earned prior to basketball season beginning. The RMAC Sports Information Directors selected First and Second Team Academic All-RMAC.
