Hedrick and Johnson both earned their first honor with the Crusaders as it marks the first time Evangel has had more than one Scholar-Athlete in a season.
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, must appear on the eligibility certificate for the sport and have attended two full years as a non-transfer or one full year as a transfer.
