Aleyna Goerlitz of Owen-Withee High School has been named one of the 32 top scholar athletes from public and nonpublic high schools as selected by the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association.

Aleyna has won 11 varsity letters in volleyball, basketball and track. She earned first team all conference honors in volleyball 3 years and basketball 1 year. She was also a two-time team MVP in volleyball, basketball and track. She is #1 in her class of 41.

Sixteen senior girls and 16 senior boys from Waukesha to Superior achieved the top combined classroom and sports performances during their four years in high school to be selected as finalists for the prestigious 30th annual 2013 WIAA Scholar Athlete Award underwritten by Marshfield Clinic.

To determine the top 32 finalists, four boys and four girls are selected from each of four WIAA divisions based on both athletic and academic achievement. Seventeen of this year’s 32 WIAA Scholar Athlete finalists have a grade point average of 4.0 to date, while the average GPA is 3.90. All 32 scholar athlete finalists earned a total of 299 letters (an average of 9 letters per
athlete) during their first 3-1/2 years of high school.

The 32 scholar athlete finalists were chosen from among 750 seniors nominated by more than 375 high schools in the state. Every year since 1984, each of the WIAA-member high schools has been invited to nominate one boy and one girl for the WIAA Scholar Athlete award. The average grade point of all Wisconsin student athletes nominated this year was 3.84, and 144 of the nominated student athletes had perfect 4.0 GPAs.

The 2013 WIAA Scholar Athlete Finalists, as well as their families and school representatives, will be recognized at an awards ceremony Sunday, May 5 at the Jefferson Street Inn in Wausau.
