Senior Jessie Hurd garnered recognition for the fourth straight season, as she earned superior status for boasting a cumulative grade-point average between 3.41 and 3.70. She was joined at the superior level by juniors Erin Dickson and Allison Littlejohn - both three-time honorees - and freshmen Hannah Cox and Ruti Zwick. Sophomore Jessie Sinkula was also recognized as superior by the CWPA for the second year in a row.
