Addison Barnard named AAC Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year

Addison Barnard can add another “first” to her resume. Barnard has been named the 2023-24 American Athletic Conference Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. It was announced by the league July 10.

She is the first Shocker softball student-athlete to earn scholar-athlete of the year honors since Wichita State joined The American in 2017. The Faculty Athletic Representatives (FARs) annually select 22 student-athletes (10 males, 12 females), one from each American sponsored sport, who will receive a post-graduate, post-eligibility financial scholarship of $2,000 and a trophy.
