With two-thirds of the 2021-22 school year in the books, numerous Owensville High School student-athletes have earned recognition from the Four Rivers Conference (FRC) for their accomplishments on the field.

This week’s installment of ‘Will’ful Thinking will highlight those that have been recognized  by the FRC for their outstanding work in the classroom in order to maintain their eligibility to compete on the court or field.

In order to earn Academic All-FRC recognition, student-athletes have to earn a varsity letter in the sport they competed in along with maintaining a 3.6 grade-point average (GPA) during their season.

Among the fall sports in the conference, football led the way with a total of 84 athletes earning Academic All-FRC honors.

Nathan Cabot’s Owensville Dutchmen led fall orange and black athletes with 12 honorees.

They included Derek Brandt, Dominic Grigaitis, Austin Lowder, Alex Pack, Austin Long, Charlie Whelan, Blake Elliott, Hayden Shoemaker, Logan Bailey, Connor Fisher, Jaden Gerlemann and Landon Kramme.

Jamie Ridenhour’s Dutchgirl volleyball player were next with 10 players being selected.

Those earning Academic All-FRC honors were Addison Menz, Payton Boyd, Drew Copeland, Josie Gerlemann, Kylie Kitchen, Molly Wnuk, Anna Heidbrink, Keira Hendrix, Kyla Hendrix and Olivia Vandegriffe.

Hannah Koppelmann’s Dutchgirl softball team and Matt Candrl’s OHS Cross Country squad each had eight Academic All-FRC selections.

Earning recognition off the diamond were Kate Blankenship, Alison Daniels, Emma Daniels, Anna Finley, Layni Heidbreder, Hannah Nelson, Leah Reed and Addison Wright.

OHS harriers earning Academic All-FRC nods included Gabe Soest, Freddy Zheng, Ilene Limberg, Kyah Weirich, Abbie Gibson, Lauren Kandlbinder, Saylor Richardson and Hayden Loeb.

Working hard to support the Dutchmen football team on the sidelines, five OHS football cheerleaders under the guidance of Raquel Bunton also earned Academic All-FRC recognition.

They include Kaylee Fisher, Arissa Huff, Emily Marquez, Ahna Rasmussen and Josie Wilka.

For OHS student-athletes in the winter sports of basketball, wrestling and cheerleading, their gpa is figured averaging their first-semester grade and their current second semester grade at the conclusion of their respective seasons.
