Jackson Caldwell Male-Scholar-Athlete of the Year

Jackson Caldwell was named the American Athletic Conference Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year and the Men’s Cross Country Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the conference announced Wednesday afternoon.

Caldwell is the second-straight Shocker to be named the AAC Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year, after Brock Rodden (baseball) claimed the honor last year, and is the Shockers’ first Cross Country Scholar-Athlete of the Year since Wichita State joined The American in 2017.

Addison Barnard 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.

As of July 1, women’s bowling at Wichita State will become an NCAA program under Shocker Athletics. They will compete as an affiliate member of Conference USA. Current women’s bowling coach Holly Harris will serve as the program’s first NCAA Division I women’s head coach. The Wichita State men’s bowling program will remain a sport supported by the Rhatigan Student Center as the NCAA doesn’t sponsor men’s bowling.
